Should I go for third treatnemnt
Apr 5, 2009
I have HCV genotype 2, I Already had 2 treatments Pegasys+RIBA, after first treatment it was undetectable for 6 months, after second treatment for 18 months now HCV RNR is < 12, is it a lot or no? should I do third treatment?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
It appears that you have had a sustained virologic response (SVR as we call it) after the second treatment. So no, I don't think you need another round of treatment.
