Viral Load Decrease

Jan 3, 2009

Hi Dr. I had a viral load of 6Million when I started the Interferon and Riboverin. After two months of treatment the viral load is down to 94 thousand. The fact that it has vome down is good. But should it be closer to zero or is my body responding well to treatment? Thanks for your help.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

That is an excellent response in 8 weeks. That kind of response is usually predictive of a sustained response after treatment stops.

how sick am I?
