Is it true they they call (post-infection/post treatment) undetectable level of Hep C in the blood a Sustained Virologic Response (SVR)?. Do we know that this means the HCV virus is gone forever, or is monitoring still necessary?
Response from Dr. McGovern
There is more and more information available that once someone attains a SVR (sustained virologic response) after treatment, that this is a durable response.
I would check once again at 18 months after treatment.
