Response from Dr. Dieterich
Yes that is true. We are working on a trial of pegylated interferon for people who have failed to respond to interferon and ribavirin. This will be similar to trials for people who are HIV negative. This will be a long term trial for people who are not responding even to this combination of peg and ribavirin. DTD
