Sofosbuvir and 5885

Hi I am new to this forum. I Received results for my 2 week blood draw and was undetected. Is that the norm for most people to be undetected at week 2?
I read the threads very interesting ,lots of good information. I am on the sofosbuvir and 5885 for 24 weeks no RIBA .I have had no sides but also wonder about the 24 weeks if people are being cured at 12 weeks or 8 weeks. I asked my nurse if she felt they may drop the 24 weekers to 12 weeks if Gilead felt 12 weeks does it...She said she did not think so...Iwould think that Gilead would drop the 24 weeks to less if people were being cured at fewer weeks. Since the longer you are on a med you need to be concerned about harming possibly.

Hi there, congratulations for getting to UND by the 2nd week, that is really great! It is called EVR (early viral response) which is a good indication that you will get to SVR.

I wanted to mention that UND does not mean cured.  The trials have been done based on 24 weeks, then  after tx ends you wait 6 months, if you are still UND, have not relapsed, you will be considered SVR.

I did 48 weeks of SOC and was UND for 41 of those weeks, relapsed 6 weeks later.

My best to you

Good to hear you are UND and I hope you attain SVR.
