      In this case, the accellerated damage to his liver would NOT be due
      to the treatment triggering the hep C virus into causing more damage,
      it is due to his having autoimmune hepatitis. Autoimmune hepatitis is
      when your own immune system recognizes the liver as some foreign so
      the immune system is attacking and damaging the liver. Since
      interferon inhances your immune system it can strengthens that
      autoimmune response. In his case it was not the virus which did the
      damage, but his immune system, and it sounds like the interferon made
      that worse. Too bad he did not listen to the advice from the second
      doctor.
