Being that you are from canada, type 1, and this is just a guess, you will be treating with boceprevir. Here is a link to thier webpage, it covers all the questions you may have about response rates and side effects.

sorry let me rephrase that comment, my hemotologist said for some reason the treatment is taking faster to the geno 1a's. but they have seen such dramatic results that I think they r even baffled. sorry if that offended anyone that wasnt my intention Just mis quoted. oopsie love to all
