Sounds like good advice from your doctors. Go for it! I definitely would. People have behailersing very promising results with PSI 7977. In fact I would fly to the other side of the world to do such a trial if I could.
Obviously as others have said, check the trial details. In particular, what is the protocol if you get the placebo.
FYI, I believe Lia is Geno-3.
Hi nygirl7, I don't think Lia meant that she was going to be taking a double dose of Interferon. I think she meant she was doing SOC ("double drug treatment") of Interferon and Ribavirin. Maybe Incivek and Victrelis aren't available in Brazil?
There is some information of excellent results with PSI 7977 that might be helpful to know about for Genotype 2 and 3.
Gen 03...Incivek/Victrelis aren't available in Brazil... Hi, curiouslady. Tried to join the clinical trial? why it did not work? I will have little chance to participate ... not want to get in the placebo group! still do not know the protocol, all I know at the end of January
Ah. I see you found the page. The trial must be available in your country to participate. Not all trials have placebos. Even the ones who have placebos with Hepatitis C, they are given a chance to have treatment after a period of time.
