The standard course of Rebetron For strands of 1A
Mar 18, 2001

I would like to know the treatment for Hep C for genotype 1A

Response from Dr. Dieterich

The standard of care is for 12 months of treatment with ribavirin and interferon. Pegylated interferon is now approved in the US but ribavirin by itself is not, but should be soon. As soon as ribavirin becomes available the standard of care will be peg interferon and ribavirin. DTD
