Copyman is happy to report NO more copies of virons

Just got my 6 month results back using the most sensitive test available.......

NGI UltraQual : "Negative,HCV RNA Not Detected"

NGI HCV QuantaSure : "Less then 2 IU/ml, Unable to calculate result since non-numeric result obtained for component test"

For anyone that don't know and especially any newbies I was in a study for one of the new drugs coming out soon called Telaprevir. If you can wait about a year there is a very good chance you will see the same results as I did. This stuff really works.

God bless everyone and Happy New Year

Looks like you made the right decision by stopping early.  Congratulations!  Telaprevir rocks and I got my SVR using it too.  It sure is a wonderful feeling and now you can get on with your life and put this behind you.

Thank you all for the kind words. This great news really didn't sink in until I just read the nice things you all said. I'm not much of one to cry but you peeps have done it to me.

I sit here with tears in my eyes realizing this chapter in my life may finally be over.

I also sit here thinking of some members on this forum that may have deserved this more then me. The ones that have tx'd several times or have cirrhosis. They are the ones that really deserve this. They keep fighting and still come back here to help others. I pray that you and everyone with HCV attains SVR someday.

The last thing I have to say is thanks to all of you for being here during the last few years.  You were basically my support system. I told no one except my wife so you were like my family. You put up with my antics and sarcasm at times, sorry to anyone I insulted. I hope I made up for it with the many people I helped along the way.

Thanks again and may God bless you all
