I know a few people with advanced liver disease who were pcr positive at 6 months but continued on anyway, and a year later they were undetected. One lady I know in Maryland did 2 years of combo (in a study), went undetected after a year and now has been undeteced for 3 years.

There have even been some studies where even the geno 2's and 3's relapse with only 6 months treatment. My GI usually gives them the option of continuing past the 6 months.
A lot depends on you and your doc and your situation.
