I tried to get the VA to cover mine a couple of years ago and it was a no go. I started a Interferon and Ribiviron treatment in 2008 and it failed. In 2010 I did get in on a Incivek/Interferon/Ribiviron trial and was pronounced SVR in 24 weeks. Here I am 6 years later and I am still non-detectable. I feel great and have plenty of energy. So, to you my friend,...

As of today I finished a 12 week trial treatment by Vertex. Today, since I was RVR at week 4, they pronounced me End Of Treatment. If the numbers on my PCRs had not added up Vertex would have kept me on another 12 weeks of SOC. So, they said there was no need for me to continue and now I play the waiting game for six months to see if I maintain and make SVR. ...
