Majorie is wrong. Doctors, researches and scientist are using the word "CURE" now. As long as you sustain a SVR (sustained Viral Response) 6 months after your last day of treatment you are considered cured. I think it is 6 months. It may be a year but I'm sure it is 6 months. I have many friends who have no sign of hep c after 3 to about 8 years and 3 friends going on over 15 years.

What you do have to have is a more sensitive test once you have 'cleared' the virus so anti-bodies can be detected and not mistaken for a re-infection the last thing you want is a false positive. Some people have been known to clear the virus without even going through any treatment, it one of those wonder of the human body. I did the combination therapy about five years ago and am still virus free. Good luck!

I don't know if cure is the word but I had it and I was on a treatment. A pill called( Rebasphere)200mg and a injecting of (Pegasys) 0.5ml . the pills I took one in the morning and one at night. The shot was once a week. For 12 months and after the treatment I went to my doctor and he told me there was no sight. Of the hepatitis c in my liver and till this day still clear this was in 20011 . So I hope your friend finds this a little better out come for her.
