Breakthrough and positive news
I was diagnosed acute Hep C 1a  since FEbruary 2009 and was most likey infected in December 2009 and am co-infected HIV+ since 1987.
Started  Therapy after receiving lab tests of acute with starting viral load of 5920000. and during therapy 346000 -397000  then 20 and then eventually non dectable from and unfortunately breakthrough end of November with a viral load of 75
Haemoglobion started at 16 from start of therapy in march 2009 to its lowest value of 11,3 and was on average 12up until last test where breakthrough occurred.
Well Known specialist in Berlin decided to    continue and extend treament to 72 weeks. It is not  regarded any longer in co-infected patients to have breakthroughs. Dependant on level of breakthrough therapy is continued and when no thousands but small numbers therapy in Germany wouldbe continued and even continued should little breakthroughs happen still during the therapy and wouldonly be stopped in extreme numbers.
Moreover,acute and starting early been told means continuation of therapy as chances are 30%50 % as there has also been no liver damage.
There is regarded to be a difference bewteen non co-infected and co-infected.co-infected because of the  double strain of  blood born viruses and coinfected  means breakthroughs happen more often and are observed and therapyin most cases continued. Also been told new     medications and not trials will be made avaible first tonon co-infected and later toco-infected and if and when available  after 2013
Further told my interferon dosage every 8-9days was not at faultas the interferon still  remains visible in the body for upto 4 to6 days after the last injection.However, been told to up myribba from1200 to1600 because  of high haemoglobin.
this may help others like myself who were acute,co-infected and have slight breakthroughs to know according to German specialist therapy can stillbe beneficial and lead to30-50 chance of clearance
