Joy, by "numbers" are you referring to ALT/AST numbers?  That would be consistent with detecting some hepatic irregularities in the lab?  Hmm.  Let us know.

UND was at 14 days, don't yet have the results from day 18 when the trial was halted for me.  I have been told that the problem was the numbers intially went way down and then back up.  So I'm waiting to see how it all shakes out.  And yes Odin I think the roll-over will do it.  Meanwhile it beats a stick in the eye and I'll continue with the trial mandates.  
It does feel good...

Thanks Joy. Either way you will wipe out the critters in the roll-over. No more HCV. All this is so exciting.

Great info, thanks for posting.  Something was certainly doing it's job!

To get SVR after only 18 days of dosing would be HUGE news.  Please keep on posting.  This is all ground-breaking info.

I missed your post.
Yes, weekly labs every week for 4 weeks, (not counting the day they did labs at the end of the 938 dosing period) and then monthly. The roll-over trial is, I understand loosely scheduled for April.

Thanks so much. I'm cautiously optimistic, I really wasn't expecting this good news after 18 days.  Hopefully things will work out with either maintaining and having SVR or finishing off the virus with the roll-over trial.  Either way I'll take it!

Thanks for letting us know. Wishing you good luck. Out of curiosity are they doing lots of follow up tests?
