Asked to join ABT493/530 study

I just got a call from Duke Medical Ctr about joining a study for one or the other new ABTdrugs early May.
W or w/o ribavirin for 12 weeks. My doctor gave the go ahead to bypass SOLVADI and provided I meet the
inclusion criteria, begin tx in this trial.
Hopefully this could help alot of us; has anyone anything to add or recommend?
I remain grateful for these drugs and treatments.

AllI can say is I wish all the luck in the world. I tip my hat to anyone that does any form of a trial. I too did a trial for sofosbuvir and gs-1586. Un fortunately I have to wait till I reach 24 weeks before I know for sure (astral 2). The waiting is driving me nuts. Again good luck
