triple treatment for geno type 2

Seeing my Dr today and have a question about geno type 2 doing triple treatment with incivek. All that I have read say it has only been tested on type 1 and that type 2 is easier to treat so it is not needed. He he just being overly cautious? Just a question. thanks

Couple of things...there are currently trials going on with triple and geno 2"s and 3"s  however to date the only approved protocol for thses two types is  still the combo Peg/Riba.

And yes the success rate for treating type 2 is approx. 80% (doing 24 weeks) .. with Peg/Riba..so approx. the same as with triple on geno type 1
