I am now at one year post treatment. In my case, I started the treatment in stage 4 HepC, meaning I already had cirrhosis. I had also had the virus in my body, the specialist said, for 30+ years, and in that time a lot of damages had been done. I did not respond to the treatment, they pulled me off at 14 weeks. My viral load started at 5 million and went ...

Thank you for your answer. Since I am in stage 4 hepC and have no money, I am willing to volunteer for any such research program. Would you have any idea where to go next?

My mental health doctor has been researching this for me. From what we have found out so far, they have sucessfully used stem cells from horses (their own), and injected it back into the horse and the stem cells seem to know where to go and what to fix. In the cases presented it was their legs. It is healing leg injuries! Usually, in horses, having leg in...
