Next round of Tx
Jan 12, 2011

Last May I had to end treatment after the virus broke through at week 52. I've read reports about pre dosing on Ribavirin 4/6 weeks before starting peginterferon as this gives a better chance of achieving RVR early (earlier the better?) Should I start now or just wait for new drugs such as Telaprevir ?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would definitely wait for the new drugs which will hopefully be available later this year.
