So where is the Twinvir coming from ?
Are you doing your own importing or is it through Greg geofferey ?
Is Twinvir Sof & Dac ?

I am 1b,treatment naive,vl off the scale,enzymes not far above top of normal range,positive for, as far as I can quess ,38yrs ,fibroscan 14.1.fibrosis unknown but assumed to be f3/f4.no sign of cirrohsis when ultrasound done 3yrs ago . when I was told to wait,but probably there now.3 wks into tx with no side effects worth mentioning,and feeling better than I have for donks.I can really feel this stuff killing off the virus day by day.Cant wait to see what the 4wk test results produce.

Hi Miko, Do you mind me asking, are you well-built? It would be interesting to know which patients have no/more side effects according to weight, although I understand that not all may wish to share, but I would find it interesting as I am very tiny. LG

London Girl,Im 70kg5'9" slim and like to think I"m very fit,which I'm determined to maintain,whatever,and which I think is the real key as to why my journey so far has been easy.I know a lot of you out there are suffering.I just keep telling myself every time I down some of those pills I hear the dying virus scream in rage.Its been said before on these forums that except for riba,dosages are one size fits all.Probably as more and more info on dosages appears that will change.But that is Dr Freemans area of expertise.

Hi Miko, thanks for that, It is very interesting to me and I feel of interest to others here too, possibly in paticular female patients.

You are 6' 9" ? -Smiles, I am 5' 2"

Hi Hamilton

We tried to chat the other day but the system was clunky. I'm emilio, geno 1b and currently day 20 of sof/dac and only doing 12 weeks at this stage. F2/3 approximate. Treated before with IFN/Riba and polymerase inhibitor in 2008 for 63 weeks. While F3/4 doesn't quite make you cirrhotic it's getting up there and I can see the need to hit this longer and harder maybe. What's your VL? starting. I was considering extending to 24 weeks but will make that decision in a week or so, just see how my body responds. In regard to the ribavirin, if it were me I wouldn't use again as a geno 1 but I do see the benefits in leading out with Rbv and leading in for that matter. I believe riba is still a must with geno 3 and moderate damage and extension. Em


Geno 1b F2/3 snce early 80s. Treated in 2008_9 for 63 weeks on INF/Riba. Commence Sof/Dac on 6 October 2015 and completed 18 weeks of tx. UND at 4-6 weeks, UND at EOT, SVR 2, SVR 6 and SVR 12 on 6 May 2016.

Only 7" diff LG. you would almost be able to cry on my shoulder when the Riba gets to you.But 12000 miles might make it difficult.

Emilio,if you will pardon me butting in.I am in much the same quandary about extending as you .Our profiles are not dissimilar.I don't just want to be in the 92+-% svr catergory,I want to be in the 100%.The use of Ribavirin,which apparently only adds about 5% to the equation is largely governed by conventional costs of the new DAA"s.At $100,000 for 12 wks adding an El Cheepo like Ribavirin (to hell with the side effects) that could save some govt agency forking out another $100,000 for a 24wk treatment makes economic sense.However,with the much cheaper generics, the landscape changes radically ,and this is not reflected in the various "How to treat" etc advisories,and the You-tube videos I have been watching.i am hoping that in the up and coming AASLD conference that is happening in the middle of November some definitive Data will be presented,particularly from Japan where sof-dac regimes have been widely used for some time.
I would very much like to keep in touch with you.
