    If the viral load is not down that means you are a non-responder to combo therapy. I would assess the AST/ALT , histology and then consider high dose induction

            Charly I don't understand what you mean when you say "all other tests were
            normal". PCR isn't an exact measurement really. Anything above zero is bad.
            But we can't measure it to zero. So it's more of an estimation. And
            different labs using different tests, yeilding different results. Good luck!
