Hi all

I've had Hep C Genotype 1b since at least the early 90s. I had my round with interferon and ribavirin in 2008 and lost . I started Twinvir treatment on 20 January, and finished on 12 April. 11 weeks post EOT I'm still undetected and I have cause for confidence that I'm finally rid of the virus.

ALT 257 99.4 62.4 49.7
AST 257.1 87.3 49.8 47.1
GGT NA 75 NA 57
Platelet 77 100 87 105
Prothrombin 15.6 16.4 15.9 15.6
INR 1.16 1.25 1.29 1.26
VL 1980000 UND UND UND

My thanks goes to Leon and the good people at Incept Pharmaceuticals in Bangldesh, as well as to the UAE MoH for permitting very easy importation of the Twinvir I required to treat the virus.

Great news diplomat. Congratulations on reaching SVR. :) :)

You have been given a gift. Pass the word on to others that there are alternatives to the outrageously priced branded meds.

All the best to you. #flower #flower #flower

Great news Diplomat, many congrats!! Always glad to hear about a new generic rebel reaching their SVR!! Spread the word that you don't have to wait around until your sick enough for your insurance company to pay for Gilead's over priced drug when generics will give you the same result. Get screwed Gilead!!

G1a dx'd in 1992, Biopsy F2 VL 8mill +. Tried tx with Interferon/Riba, back in 2008 didn't last long it felt horribly ugly!! I stopped tx, after 5 weeks!!
Started tx 6/1/16 with Harvoni.

PS sorry about the formatting

Great news diplomat! If you are UND, I bet you don't care about formatting tables in the forum. But for anyone else who wants to try, here is one way to do it:


You need to use tags like this:

[ table]

[ tr]
[ td]Date[ /td] [ td] 30.12.2015[ /td] [ td]13.04.2016[ /td] [ td] 27.04.2016[ /td] [ td]02.07.2016[ /td]
[ tr]

[ tr]
[ td]ALT[ /td] [ td] 257[ /td] [ td]99.4[ /td] [ td] 66.2[ /td] [ td]49.7[ /td]
[ /tr]

[ tr]
[ td]AST[ /td] [ td] 257.1[ /td] [ td]87.3[ /td] [ td] 49.8[ /td] [ td]47.1[ /td]
[ /tr]

[ tr]
[ td]GGT[ /td] [ td] NA[ /td] [ td]75[ /td] [ td] NA[ /td] [ td]57[ /td]
[ /tr]

[ tr]
[ td]VL[ /td] [ td] 1980000[ /td] [ td]UND[ /td] [ td] UND[ /td] [ td]UND[ /td]
[ /tr]

[ /table]

But do NOT put a space after the opening square brackets like I did. This was only to show the tags, not the result.

Each "tr" means start a new row of the table. Each "/tr" means finish the row. Each "td" means "table data", i.e. text to put in the current column of the table". Each "/td" marks the end of the text for that column in the current row. And of course "table" means start a new table, and "/table" means finish formatting the table.

If you leave out the spaces inside the square brackets, you will get this:

From those blood results it looks like you treated just in the nick of time.

Nice to see the platelets get back into triple digits!

Make sure to have regular screening for HCC with AFP/US/CT/MRI for the next few years at least
YMMV
