1. I might be starting on a therapy of pegintron (1,5 mcg per kilo) and
ribavirine. However, I have heard it is advisable to start with normal
IFN first, because of the halftime and side-effects. In that case, how many weeks should I be taking the normal IFN?
2. Do you know of any trials comparing the doses of 1,5 and 2 and 3 mcg
per kilo pegintron, are there any (preliminary) findings yet?
3. Would you recommend a 24 or a 48 week treatment?: I am hcv/hiv
positive, but am likely to respond well to treatment because of hcv type
2b and hcv rna of 108000.
