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.

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.
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:
[ td]Date[ /td] [ td] 30.12.2015[ /td] [ td]13.04.2016[ /td] [ td] 27.04.2016[ /td] [ td]02.07.2016[ /td]
[ td]ALT[ /td] [ td] 257[ /td] [ td]99.4[ /td] [ td] 66.2[ /td] [ td]49.7[ /td]
[ td]AST[ /td] [ td] 257.1[ /td] [ td]87.3[ /td] [ td] 49.8[ /td] [ td]47.1[ /td]
[ td]GGT[ /td] [ td] NA[ /td] [ td]75[ /td] [ td] NA[ /td] [ td]57[ /td]
[ td]VL[ /td] [ td] 1980000[ /td] [ td]UND[ /td] [ td] UND[ /td] [ td]UND[ /td]
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:

Relapsed somewhere after all that... Bummer!
