second treatment

What are the benefits of Interferon treatment round two? Do you reccomend it?

Response from Dr. McGovern

It depends...

If you were treated with interferon monotherapy the first time around, it is certainly worth a second try. If you were treated with interferon and ribavirin the first time around but didn't get pegylated interferon specifically, it is again worth a try.

All this also depends on how severe your liver biopsy is.
