HIV/Chronic Hep C - Co-infected
Nov 26, 2010

Is there any new treatment coming out soon for Hep C. I failed taking the Pegaysis. Thank you for your time. Deb

Response from Dr. McGovern

There are going to be many new treatments... But for the foreseeable future, most of these will be taken with Pegylated interferon and ribavirin since they rapidly become resistant if used alone. We should know soon how these drugs will work for patients with HIV.
