What is the current cure rate for Peg-Intron Geno 4?

What are the percentages of people being cured with peg intron/Riba therapy? I know it has to have gone up from several years ago.

Response rates for genotypes 2-6 is 75% with peg-intron dosage levels under 1.5 and under 800mg rebetol. For doses over that, it is 73%.

I don't know what the relapse rate is.
