Here is some history on the guy who invented the Hepc gene silencing technology.  Btw, he is an Aussie, but how much do you want to bet U.S. Pharma ends up with the glory and the billions in profits?  I suppose that makes me "Jaded" too, Jaded.   lol

From what I remember the initial phases of this trial won't be a therapeutic dosage. They will be looking for any adverse reactions with very low doses until they are confident that it is safe. I believe it will be years until the results of a therapeutic dosed trial are in.

Btw, they dosed the first human with this shot on May 29th.  Here is a thread that discusses that:  http://hepcfriends.activeboard.com/t57701241/benitec-one-shot-tx/

Hi blipette:

Benitec is the Australian based pharma co that is working on the one shot tx.  They are working with some folks at Duke Clinical Research Institute in Durham, South Carolina, for phase I/II clinical trials.  Here is some info:
