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.
