PSI-7977 + BMS-790052

I was hoping for feedback from anyone on this trial; specifically gt 1A. I'm screening for the extension which is only 12 weeks, without interferon. One arm with and one arm without Ribavarin.

I realize it's tremendously competitive so although I appear to qualify I don't know if I'll get accepted.

Also, any suggestions of anything I can do during the screening process to improve my chances would be welcome.

Thanks.

I finally got my call from U of M and she has approved my medical records and was forwarding on to the person in charge of the next step for review over this weekend. She said I should be getting a call this coming week if approved in this next step and a "meet and greet" appointment will be set up for further screening and to explain what would be expected of me and how the trials work, etc.  I'm just wondering if anyone brought a friend with them to this meeting to help remember and decipher everything or if that's not a good idea.  Also, since you've been there, approximately how long should I expect this meeting to last?

I dont know if I was completely clear at 3 months but I would have felt fine with only 3 month dosing with 2 drugs.  


You were clear way before three months.  Didn't quite understand this sentence.

Thank You very much  Katla. It looks as though its for treatment naive so
I don't qualify for this study as I failed Peg/Riba in 2004.The odds are that this treatment will cure you. Wishing you success!

I was told by my study coordinator a few weeks before the end of my trial that after the 12 week if I goes as they think it will there are plans for another  but only 4 weeks.  It's a little early obviously but I waited till my Dr and biopsy results said I had to treat rather than go through SOC. The next time the criteria might be different.

I recall that meeting.  I think I was there with another patient or two.  One man brought his son.  I felt uncomfortable with this for privacy reasons.  So no, out of respect for the other patients, it wouldn't be good to bring anyone else but yourself.  I think it lasted about an hour maybe less.  Bring a notebook.  I did.  I have been told that I knew much more than the other patients and even some of the staff.  The people on the forum can help you with stuff you don't get.  They just tell you about the set up, appts., blood draws, etc.

I was undetectable way before 3 months as were you.  That does not mean the virus was completely gone.  In fact, it most likely was NOT gone for some time afterward.  For some people it may still not be gone.  That is why this next 1 to 3 months without the drug is so critical.  It could be lurking beneath detectable limits.  Please God I hope it isn't.
