"A new literature review has provided an overview of the clinical and economic benefits of achieving SVR and to better understand the full value of chronic HCV treatment in all stages of liver disease. Overall, the review identified 354 studies involving more than 500,000 chronic HCV patients worldwide."
"The review concludes that there is a robust body of evidence demonstrating diverse sources of value from achieving SVR in all stages of liver disease. While access to treatment is generally limited to late-stage patients, less restrictive treatment strategies that target HCV eradication have the potential to abate the burdens of mortality, liver morbidity and extrahepatic manifestations, and the associated healthcare costs."

Hi Gaj,

I have to admit I felt a little bit puzzled after reading it.

The first thought that came into my mind was
Are they kidding me? So many studies just to say that "healthy people feel better than sick sick people"???? :sick:

The second thought however made me realise that perhaps by getting treated this year and not next year or the next 2-10-20 years, I might have gained some weeks, months or perhaps years more to live than if I would not have treated me. And the studies may sustain this thought.

I believe this research should be forwarded to many doctors who still advise patients to wait instead of showing them the opportunity to get treated now with generics.

Thank you for sharing it,

Cheers,
RHF
In fiecare an HCV ucide peste 500000 oameni.Medicamentele generice pentru hepatita C functioneaza. Nu deveni statistica! Cauta pe Google “medicamente generice pentru hepatita C”.
HCV kills more than 500000 people every year. HCV generic drugs work. Don't become a statistic.

Here is a typical email that came in this morning putting it in more human terms.....

Good afternoon

I apologise for taking so long but i wanted results 3 months after completing treatment and good news still no virus detected.
My treatment went very well, first week only one night gastro and vomiting, i like to think that was the night my body decided to tell itself to kill the virus.

The only ongoing noticeable side affect was joint pain but i do have osteoarthritis and i decided not to take any medications or natural health products while on treatment apart from my thyroid medication to give this every chance.

Due to having Hep C for what i believe is over 30 years i thought that my life was fairly normal, but since no virus detected i feel very different. Motivation, no fatigue, happier, people comment on my shiny hair and skin and my memory is great now. I must mention i have not had an ear infection since commencing treatment, i suffered them constantly for many years.

I am back working full time with so much energy, an overall feeling of wellness.

I will always be grateful to fixhepc, a simple thank you does not seem enough to express being given a productive and healthy life.

I love that my doctor can share my story with other hep c patients to encourage them to commence treatment and rid this virus from all those suffering and living with the thought of no cure was ever coming.

Kindest regards
YMMV
