BTB, the side effects were modest - mostly occasional fatigue, a spaced out feeling for a few hours after taking the meds in the morning, and the need to eat large lunches to stave off queasiness. I kept a pretty detailed journal describing my physical and emotional experiences on the treatment, especially in the early weeks. It's intended to be helpful ...

BTB, you make a lot of good points. But the acid test will be the effectiveness of 5885. If it fails (and look what just happened with BMS' nuc purchased from Inhibitex for $2.5 million and now abandoned) or produces modest results instead of 100% success with Gt 1's, then it will be essential to continue the combination of 7977 and daclatasvir. The...

Hi Jimee, good to hear from you. Best of luck with your SVR2 results. I'm pretty confident all of you on the 24 week trial are very likely to make SVR2, then 4, then 12. Every GT1 completing our trial that I've heard about has made SVR12 - Katia, Lowbid, now myself, plus others in the original 24 week trial. Now it's your turn to show that part...

Just got the fabulous news that I am SVR12 i.e. Cured, as 12 is the new 24, after 12 weeks of 7977 and daclatasvir, no riba. Could not be happier.

Yes, you take two pills of each in the morning with breakfast. Daclatasvir is small and round. 7977 is a longish, white oblong pill.

Made it ti SVR4! Feeling incredibly grateful. The two others I know of on exactly the same trial also made SVR4. Gilead/BMS must know if 100% of those who made SVR4 on the 24 week version of our trial also made SVR12. So far they're not saying. It would be nice to know. Looks like this really is the interferon and ribavirin free 'cure.' What gr...

I just found out that I made it to SVR4 like Lowbid and LaSirene!!! I'm thrilled and delighted! Feeling very fortunate and grateful. All three of us did 7977 and Daclatasvir for 12 weeks without ribavirin, I believe. I would love to know if 100% of the SVR4 people on the 24 week version of our trial also made it to SVR12. Gilead/BMS must know but aren&#...

Thanks for the support, Jimee. I've made it to SVR3 but I'm still waiting for SVR4. Feeling optimistic. I've basically felt well since I stopped the treatment almost six weeks ago now. I have a bit of tiredness and sluggishness sometimes. Nothing major. I was in the intense heat of the Middle East - mostly Egypt - for the first three weeks afte...

Lowbid just posted that he made it to SVR4! Great news.
