New Treatment?
I was watching the evening NBC news and they were saying that every baby boomer should get tested for the Hepatitis C virus, Dr. Nancy Snyderman (The NBC news health consultant) said that there's a new treatment coming out very soon that is strictly in PILL form, No injections?, Iv'e been following the forums for awhile and I NEVER heard of a ONLY Pill treatment on the near horizon?  Can someone chime in?

Good morning.  A couple of articles on upcoming oral therapy currently on trial.  I believe the race is on between Gilead Sciences, Abbott and BMS.  BMS is currently investigating a recent safety issue.  Hope this helps.

You may have to wait awhile for the non interferon treatments.  There are pill only treatments in the pipeline but I don't think anything is quite ready for the market yet.  How great is your liver damage?  That is probably the deciding factor.

the truth is out there
