If there are no clinical trials for testing new drugs available to you where you live, I would, first get a liver biopsy to see how urgent your need to treat is. If you need to treat again right now, I'd see if I could be tested with something like LabCorps IL28B test to help you decide what treatment options you have at your 4 week viral load test.


You can try treating again using PegIntron rather than Pegasys. It's a small % but some patients will respond to one of these after failing on the other.
You can try consensus interferon, but I understand this can be a harsh treatment.
Good luck in your decisions.

Wait until they have perfected the oral med 2-3 years, will have few side effects.
