Can HEP C be relapse again afer 1 year SVR?
Oct 24, 2010

Dear Dr McGovem, please help me to gain information about this, my wife got Hep C genotype 1 and had finished 72 week treatment using peg intron and ribavirin, now the result is still undetect after 6 month of the treatment, my question is : can HCV be relapse again afer 6 month of SVR? thx

Response from Dr. McGovern

What a great result!!!

If she has maintained a nondetectable viral load six months after stopping treatment, she has been cured. The chance of relapse is extraordinarily low.

Please send her my congratulations.
