h i v and hep c treatment
Jul 20, 2009

can hep c treament effect my p m l

Response from Dr. McGovern

I can't really comment on this because it will be very important for you to discuss your candidacy for treatment with your doctor based on your overall health and the extent of your liver disease - neither of which I am familiar with.

Hepatitis C treatment is a general antiviral therapy. There is no clear data on its effect on viruses like JC virus - the cause of PML (progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy).

I hope all goes well for you in your treatment plan.
