Please check out the petition site at Change.org (link below). I was diagnosed last September and learned of these drug trials then. The trial combined GS-7977 + daclatasvir and according to results released at the EASL this past April, the drug-combination CURED 100% of genotype 1 and 91% of genotype 2/3 WITHOUT interferon or ribavirin. The drug company Gilead Sciences owns GS-7977 and decided NOT to move forward because they are determined to do trials with their own in-house drug combination putting GS-7977 with GS-5885 and/or interferon or ribavirin. There is more info about this at the petition site and I urge you to view it and then sign the petition and ask others to do the same.
