screening

Just wanted to share that I went yesterday for the screening process for the trial. Now I have to wait 10-14 days to hear if Im accepted. I really want to get in this trial! Im just worried because of my genotype results. My results only show that Im genotype 1. They cant seem to detect if Im a or b. And the trial nurse said they might reject me because of that. So she is doing the genotype test one more time. Hopefully this one will show a or b! Praying it all works out :)

How many times have the labs not been able to figure out your genotype? Has this always been the case? Keep us posted. Praying for you also.

This will be my fourth genotype test. The first 2 came back without being able to detect any genotype. the third test showed genotype 1 but could not detect the subtype (a or b). So this 4th test Im praying will detect it. Otherwise I may be denied the trial :(

I remember reading that  when someone is in infected with two or more genotypes of hcv they can't always detect genotype.

I hope they figure yours out so you can get on the trial.

Wishing you the best of luck...
