HCV Viral load
Oct 29, 2004

I am HIV/HCV co-infection Is 700.000 viral load of hep c enough to start treatment?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would not base that decision on viral load. I would base the decision on many many factors, but the most important one would be disease activity on a liver biopsy. Let me know if you have one. Dr. McGovern
