Hep c pegintron

Aug 11, 2002

I am getting ready to start taking Pegintron in 3 months..Can you tell me the symptons I will have with it? What is the cure rate for this also.....

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Cure depends on what type of HCV you have (genotype) and whether you have HIV infection and at what stage the HIV infection is. Side effects include flu-like illness, depression, decreased blood counts, among others.

Please answer
