Round Two

Just a simple question....i know if one decides to go another round of tx if one relapses, one should switch to the "other" interferon,which for me would be the pegasus...is there a static out there statingthe difference in SVR outcomes between the two in relapsers?...Thanking you in advance for you answer

Lets see the first time I tried tx was before the peg-interfon was available. The second tx
I used the Schering stuff and finally the 3rd time I used the Schering stuff and it worked.
SVR!!!! For me the first two times I messed with the doses and then quit early. This last time I followed the directions. But after about two months my hgb was so low the md reduced the riba dose and I never could get it up to the 1200. I thought lowering the dose really would screw me but it didn't. I was a RVR cleared at 3 1/2 wks. Good luck I really would like to see you kick this virus's ***.

Wow...goes to show ya cant always go by what the statistics say and you never even switched the type of drugs...did you go 72 weeks?..im planned to do the BOC phase III trial...im just concerned because they say nonresponders have a very low SVR in the phase II trail...im a slow responder,,,so maybe i have a better chance ...i cleared somewwhere between week 12 and 24..my VL is a lot less time time around too...2 mill vs 23 mill...is that strange to drop like that?...i also had huge log drops...i went from 23 mill to 475 in 12 weeks
