      Genotype ones usually do treatment a full year. But you should go pcr
      negative within 6 months. Other genotypes usually only need 6 months to stay
      in remission. But a lot depends on your liver and other factors.

      Dear Connie, I think you ll be able to better answer that question when you know your genotype. I never went negative either, and I was on for 53 weeks, and

        Dear Connie,
        I think you'll be able to better answer that question when you know
        your genotype. I never went negative either, and I was on for 53 weeks, and
        the last 3 months of that was high dose interferon. I am genotype 1b, a
        very stubborn one. It's not going to surprise me at all if you find out
        that you are also a genotype 1. And even still, it just doesn't work for
        everybody. If it does turn out that you are genotype 1 you might consider
        waiting for the pegylated, unless you can get your doc to do daily dosing.
