I want to see the results of the clinical trials using the triple treatment and Incivek. Many people have talked about reaching success in taking it only 8 weeks during trials - also many have mentioned only needing 14 grams of fat. I would like to read the actual test results showing variances if any of you know where to find this.
8 weeks? The dosage for 8 weeks compared to 12 was in the trials but the results were not promising.
A few key words as you search might help:
More subjects in the T8/PR group experienced virologic breakthrough after Week 12 while receiving peginterferon alfa and ribavirin alone, 16% compared to 10% in T12/PR group.
In addition, in the T12/PR group, 21 subjects had cirrhosis at baseline and the overall SVR in these subjects was 62%. Among subjects with cirrhosis, 43% achieved an eRVR and of those 78% achieved SVR. Twenty-six subjects were African Americans. The overall SVR among this population was 62%. Among these subjects, 31% achieved an eRVR and of those 89% (8/9) achieved SVR.
