I wanted to know do AA respond differently to therapy for HCV?
Dear Dr. Chung,
I wanted to know do AA respond differently to therapy for HCV and if
so, what is the exact mechanism as to why? If possible, can you provide
me with literature that supports this? Thank-you.
Dr Chung Writes-
We do not know why, but it appears that AA response rates are diminished
(look up McHutchison JG, Gastroenterology 2000 119:1317).
the mechanisms are the subject of a current NIH study that will try to
examine genetic and immune variables.
