Hep C Alternative Treatment
Jan 1, 2007

Are you aware of MesoSilver as an alternative treatment for Hep C. I am 58, have genotype1a and began on 10/16/2006 with 2oz four times daily. My viral load was 14,300,000 and 9 weeks later 10,800,000.

No longer do those with Hep C have to suffer through the medical communities solution.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I am not aware of this alternative treatment.

However, I do want to caution that a change from 14 million to 10 million viral copies is not a meaningful decline. After three months we like to see a two log drop, which would mean a change from 14 million to 143,000.

I hope you do achieve this, but based on what has occurred at 9 weeks, I am afraid this will not occur.
