Saving Sperm before Treatment??
Nov 21, 2001

Thank you so much for answering our questions.

You asked for my husbands viral load which was 803,000; Genotype is 1 (not the best one for treatment) ALT - 159 AST - 92. Mild to Moderate fibrosis with some scarring. (He was a heavy social drinker, but since stopped)

Do you think that this will progress or can we wait for Pegasys? See e-mail I sent before.

Your help is greatly appreciated!

Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres

Progression of the fibrosis is slow ,and now better if your husband stopped drinking alcohol.The viral load he has is considered low.You can wait till next year.
