Furthermore - we all know that a successful tx is not about the millions of virions that go down in the first few weeks, it is about eliminating the few hangers-on that are left.

I watched that video on ribavirin resistance a ton of times and I am not convinced that ribavirin resistance makes it not worth while to use. On the contrary, there is data from the ION2 and the SIRIUS trials that show that it makes a difference in some situations. My thinking is that a DAA is a one trick pony. It has one method of action. If a virion mutation is not susceptible to that action then you can swamp it with that DAA till the cows come home and that mutation will just keep replicating and repopulate your viral load. Ribavirin, on the other hand, has more than one method of action. It is not as fast or dramatic as a DAA but it can still nail that mutant virion when the other DAAs have become useless. Which is exactly what you need to keep the pressure on when you have a few stragglers that just keep hanging on. So, in my humble opinion, I think that the role of ribavirin when used with the DAAs is underrated.

How about Asunaprevir? Could this be added to the mix?

Plenty of time for you to get to UND yet Em. Some don't get there until 9 or 10 weeks into a 12 week treatment and still achieve SVR.

hi Em,
Yes, I'd be a bit upset too, at the same time your liver functions & other blood tests were very good, so I believe it is only a matter of waiting a bit longer for SVR. :)
As you said you could have F3 fibrosis & also you're tx experienced, I'm in the same situation, so due to this we probably need longer then 12 weeks tx & even add Riba at some point?
I was wondering if one can add Riba half way through the tx ? to assure best results ?

Thanks for the well wishes and encouragement everyone. The long way round is okay with me. Riba? I'm still not sold on it for geno 1s? However would be keen on adding simprevir if anyone knows where. Em

Is it really as simple as buying API on Alibaba ?
There is one API I have my sight on for geno 3 to add to the mix sold in China, I mean is that all it takes ?
I did check the company looks very big & reputable making medicinal API.s

Because if it is as simple anyone can make their own meds.....& mix anything they like

I think so Joy so approved with IFN/Riba as a tripple. Think i could take great pleasure smashing the ampules of IFN lol. Dont think you can obtain or buy separately
