Treatment result

Mar 22, 2008

My HCV viral load was 3040000 IU/mL and after 4 weeks of Pegintron&Ribavirin the Viral load reduces to 25000 IU/mL. I wish to know with this result, whether the treatment is being effective or not?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

That is a very good treatment response. It is important to see about a 2 log reduction in viral load in the first 4-8 weeks of treatment and you have experienced that so far.

Some more insight.
