Re: [GIWorld-Hepatitis] Re: to Doc: INFO: Triple therapy for non-responders
I havent checked that out, it maybe daily or alternate day or with peg..all the same. No definite

, its the world of publish or perish!

If I'm reading, and adding right, this study
mentions a total of 4 studies (or abstracts) on triple
therapy in non-responders. I have one of these, and
in that one the dosing of interferon was 5mu every
other day. Would you happen to know the dosing of
interferon in the other studies? I don't suppose it's
that important, I am just curious. My doctor is
currently participating in a study of triple therapy
but with daily dosing of interferon, but he wants me
to wait and do triple therapy with a pegylated
