I Have hep c genotype 1a
Mar 12, 2005

What is the genotype 1a of hep c

Response from Dr. McGovern

It is one of several genotypes 1-6. It is the most common genotype in the US.

It is harder to treat than genotype 2 or 3 but that should not be a reason to try since more than half of patients with this genotype get a "cure".

Dr. McGovern
