HCV TaqMan <30 IU/mL no HCV RNA Detect

The Prove 3 study nurse just called to say that at 48 weeks post treatment my VL is:

                                HCV TaqMan <30 IU/mL no HCV RNA Detect

I was in the Prove 3 arm that received 12 weeks of VX950 + INF + RBV followed by another 12 weeks of only INF + RBV.  Went UND between week 1-2 and remained that way.

I'm not looking for accolades but am just providing information for people who are considering VX950 as a tx option.  It worked for this geno 1b non-responder to SOC tx.  

For five years after being diagnosed I dwelled daily on the subject of HCV.  This board saved my sanity on many occasions.  I hope that many old timers out there can forgive me that I'm off enjoying my family, work, friends...life.
