Anyone know any new clinical trails in Northern CA?
My husband is a non-responder for the treatment he had, which was Pagasys and Riboflavin. He is looking for new treatment. He has genotype 1. Anyone with info? We live close to Sacramento.

I’m in the Sacto area, but am not too familiar with the trials right now. Is he seeing a good doctor in the area? Often, the best resource is a GI or hepatologist.

Was he a full non-responder or did he relapse?

Let me know; I check back from time to time—

Hi there, My husband is going to the VA. And he is a non-responder. He went through treatment 3 or 4 years ago.
I read about a trial where they were using Candesartin (Atacand) to prevent scar tissue from forming in the liver, as it's an angiotensin receptor blocker.
Atacand saved my life. I had heart failure, almost on the transplant list. I found a great doc at UCDavis (after firing one in Auburn who almost killed me), who put me on the Atacand. My heart is now normal!
So when I saw this trial I was really curious.

I'd do a search using those specific terms. The other thing you could try it contacting CPMC and ask if they're doing any trials in your area.

OH, I sent 'Bootz' a private message. If Bootz will look near the upper right hand corner of this page, she can click on 'inbox' to view messages.

OH, nice to see you around :)
