If you had a 1.7 log drop after your 4 week lead in and you were UND at week 8 (after 4 weeks Vic) and you are treatment naive and you have mild liver fibrosis and you are Caucasian, your chances for SVR are very good. I have looked at a couple of articles and the SVR rates given are between 90-97%.

Go to page 8 of the following article:

Look at the following to pages from another article. You may have to register but it is free.

One question, though, are they treating you as treatment naive? I thought you treated at age 18 but had to stop treatment when you lost your insurance coverage. Your previous treatment response may shed some light on your question. Even so, you are doing well with a 1.7 log drop at week 4 and being UND at week 8 on Vic.

Best of luck.

She told me if I'm still und at 12 weeks I'm doing 28 so I guess she is tx me as naive. I was responding to therapy before when I was 18 but didn't finish.

Your chances for SVR seem to be very good.

Best of luck.
