Shouldn't make a difference. I had 13 mill and went UND in an all oral trial inside of two weeks. If the drugs are powerful enough and fit your GT they tear through it like a house afire.
I had a viral load of over 20 million that went down to only 40 in one week and then undetectable by week 4. I am on week 8 now.
To Ajw78757 and curiouslady1,
Thank you both for responding. This gives me hope that I, too, can beat this virus.
I forgot to mention that I am Genotype 1 and I do know that Genotype 1 does not respond as well as some other Genotypes.
You have a 75% chance which is up from 40% before addition of incivek
not anymore!!! I am GT 1a and I know two others who got similar results with the new combos on the market are just made for the 1a people.
Thank you everyone. I have to admit when I was first diagnosed in July of this year I was stunned. A week or so later I got the viral load count and it seemed extremely high. After reading all of your replies, I am now much more optimistic. Thanks again!
My brother is txing and had a starting Viral load of 49,000,000.After two weeks it was 300 Waiting for 4 week results now.Hoping they are UND !!!!! cindy
I had a similar question. Thanks for posting. The responses are hopeful!
Thanks so much to everyone who responded. I am much more optimistic now and will hope for SVR.
I am (WAS) Genotype 1 i am currently finishing my treatment and was called today and told i am totally undetectable and my viral load dropped to ZERO!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so overwhelmed with happiness.
Yes I was scared when I got my VL of 8 million. It seemed so high. The old protocol would consider that VL high and meant treatment for 48 weeks. I ended up doing a trial with Telap and virus was gone in less then 3 weeks. These new PI's kill the dragon FAST!
Know a guy 22 million UND week four.
mine was 12 million geno type 1a triple tx with incivek und in 2 weeks !!!! im cc if that makes a diff ...cc is supposed to be the easiest then ct then tt takes longer i guess...good luck !!!! go forth and kill that hep c !!!
For many people the new medications (Incivek or Victrelis) will not out most of the virons. The key is whether you have a good response to the interferon and ribavirin which is needed to knock out the virons resistant to the new medications. Basically your chance with triple therapy is as good as anyone else.
best of luck,
