Injection Once a Month

I was treated with the 24 wk interferon and ribavirin geno 2...3 months after treatment undected next and the 6 month test is in 2 weeks. I have two friends that have been recently told they have 'C'. However, they have heard there is a new treatment with monthly injections coming soon, I am saying to them do the treatment now and don't wait.
Any Information You Have Would be appreciated.

You can google 'albuferon'  for further information.  I haven't read much on it lately but it might still be in trial.  It was every two weeks.  Some people here were in the two-week albuferon trial.

Here is some 4-week albuferon trial info

If you look at the link you will notice that this drug is in early Phase III testing, so it has a ways to go.  I didn't look for any of the earlier phase trial results.  good luck
