Tig,

Yes, an excellent site for all kinds of info.

I was particularly interested in the article which "mentions" the "look" at new daa's (SOF, etc.) and possible re-activation of B.

Wish the short B one had been lengthier, more in depth, for one stop shopping reading. But still, interesting (that and all the site contains).

That site is a good source for many things, and it leads you on to more links and to research more, further afield. C.

Thank you Tig for the up-dated link.  It's a very good read with lots of info on hcv. As a matter of fact my Doctor is one of the contributing authors!  RC

That article has been changed since it was originally posted in 2014, RC. The original link dealt with something else. Now the link accesses some very interesting and concerning info on these DAA's and those coinfected with HBV/HCV. It's an informative article.

As a part-time California resident, I've been following the ongoing debate there over the cost of the new treatments. The final report from the California Technology Assessment Forum isn't due until next month. I expect that report will establish guidelines that California insurers will use in approving treatment.
