Interferon Lambda

Does anyone have any experience with or further information regarding interferon Lambda?
Seems like any treatment without the sides of current interferon regimens is worth investigating further.  See link below

A few things I noticed about this stuff.  It looks like the Phase 1 study was about 4 weeks long and the intent was not to get to SVR. Phase 1 studies are usually about safety and efficacy.  The Fatigue and Nausea percentages were less than published for Pegasys in the same categories.  But need to keep in mind that the limited span was 4 weeks vs. 48 weeks SOC.  And, the hematologic imacts were at 4 weeks.  I think that most people who treat with SOC and run into neutrophil and hemoglobin problems run into them a little farther down the treatment trail.
