information on free trials/ janis page?

It's been a long time. Lost alot of memory from tx. treated in 2007 thru 2008. Had a rough time. seen some names I remember. I'm in what you call in remission. I got lucky. Now I have a friend in trouble with no insurance.  I want to help. 1st I'd like to find that janis hep7/ what ever can't remember. plz help me. Also how to find free trials in the chicago area and requirements.
I tried to tell him you need a biopsy immeadiatly. I can't believe his dr. is letting this go because of insurance. He's already been in the hospital and I had to pull him aside and confront him of his illness. I knew he had Hepc! He's jaudice and I'm worried for him and want to help.

Hi, you can find the information you are looking for at J&F New site.
Except the site is no longer called Janis and Friends. I have started a new
blog called " New HCV Drugs and Liver Health"


I am the founder of Janis and Friends Web Site along with, (Janis), and I was
the sites webmaster.
The format I am using this time around is a blog, it has been easier to keep
it updated, I am also in the process of adding basic HCV info daily.

Over the years I have frequented these message boards and have added a link to them on the blog.
(The boards are great)

On the sidebar of the blog you will find what you're looking for.

Look For:
Trials and Financial Help
Financial Assistance-HCV Drugs
HCV New Drug Pipeline

The blog eventually will have most of what I had on J&F site, but it will be more up to date.
I miss the website also, It was a sad day when I took it down.

Here is a link to Financial Assistance


Thank you

There are a few trials going on in in Texas right now.  We are actually studying that in school, and I was looking them up.  For whatever area you are in, check ClinicalTrials.gov, type in the disease, and the area.  There will be a list of trials that are ongoing, done, and ones looking for volunteers.  Good luck to both you and your friend.
