Well maybe, maybe not, when I first joined here there was alot of hype on telaprevir, then VX950. It was also fast tracked then, people, some doctors were swearing it would be here by 2007 and at the latest 2008. Well guess what. It was mid 2011 before it was here...... The point is nobody knows they are only wishing and guessing.

I agree with you there, hopefully due to the shorter tx time we see it late 2014-2015 one good thing  about this is  that  there are others running the race  with promising results , and that makes the future much more positive and brings us closer to the end of interferon and a  all oral cure .
