Hey webtomass,

Nice to see your ALT/AST's steadily coming down! Looks very good. Happy you are keeping us updated.

tk36flex (also on similar trial - sof/vel 12 weeks) was able to post his VL at one week and at 4 weeks.

I am wondering why you are not able to post yours? Can you explain why? Are you not allowed to know them or post them? I did not really understand your comment below about "blockers/inlace".

I am still waiting to find out if I am going to be able to get in similar trail (sof/vel/GS-9857 8 weeks, or sof/vel alone 12 weeks).

Glad to hear your sides are manageable.  

Canuck

Hi all,

A quick update from the Golden TGV Bullet Train that arrived at Week 4 gate on February 15. The service in first class has been tremendous so far.

PRIOR TREATMENT:

ALT: 65
AST: 54
Eosinophil 7.5 a little high (range:0.0-6.8)
Platelets 86 (Low)
HCV RNA: 336,000

WEEK 1

ALT: 55
AST: 50
Eosinophil 0.18 (normal range)
Platelets 100 (Low)
HCV RNA: Here's the kicker, study specifics blocker are inlace for subjects results BUT will know more next week.

WEEK 2

ALT: 49
AST: 38
Platelets 102
HCV RNA: Unknown

WEEK 4

ALT: 37
AST: 28
Platelets: 104
HCV RNA: UNKNOWN - 
specifics blockers are in place for subjects results. Week 8 visit on March 14.


Liver panels and everything else is in normal range, woohoo.
No side effects to report at this time other than what I'm already going through. Difficulty falling asleep, brain fog. Minor itching and rash on right legs all but disappeared. Drink lots of water no matter what treatment you are on CRUCIAL. Cheers. M

Hi JimmyK,

Jump on board, there's a nice seat beside me here in first class. What regiment are you going on exactly? I recall you talked about getting on the same clinical trial I'm on. 

P.S. Will be getting 1 month results today or tomorrow and will be posting them.

 

Cheers, M

Greetings and pardon my delay in saying welcome.

If the seat next to you is not taken, I would enjoy the company as I just received the same ticket. My Doctor just called and he is offering me the single trial for this compound here in Houston.

When I thanked him he said.

"No problem, I am willing to do anything to get you out of my office!" He then laughed and said this was by far the best and most promising possible treatment.

I am a bit stunned but very grateful.

Regards

 

JimmyK

Hey webtomass,

A delayed welcome from me and those numbers seem good as everyone said. All going in the right direction and no side effects. Sounds like a good way to slay this dragon.

Hi Tig,

 

Thanks and agree with your words of wisdom :)

As for my rash on my right leg, its not even expose to the sun and am applying Gold Bond powder on it and when its really itchy I have a cortisone cream I use lightly. I had that happen on last treatment and resolve itself. I read stories on effect of sun while on these drugs... I do wear sunglasses all the time though. Cheers, M

Hey Michael,

Your test results are looking better each time, that's great. No side effects from it is even better! I'm not familiar with your protocol, but if you're developing a rash, you might want to avoid too much sunlight when you're out there blading away. Don't wear yourself out, this is the time to scale it back a little and let your body use all that energy for healing. Staying active is good, but don't overdue it during treatment if you can avoid it. Just an opinion.... Sounds like you're doing well, keep it up. smile

Hi Cinnamon Girl,

You are right, these drugs act quickly and am quite happy with liver and platelet results so far. Best, M

Its looking good so far and feeling just fine. Abbie and others will take a beating once Sof. + Velpatasvir hit the market soon.

Hi,

Just to clarify, I'm in the trial arm referred to Deferred Treatment Subsidy group. About 100 in that arm and we are getting the treatment drugs. No placebo.

I have no side effects whatsoever on this other than what I'm already going through. Difficulty falling asleep, brain fog, drugs do take their toll when I go out and blade around the park. Did over 50K last week and I was down and out. A little itching on legs with a light rash that doesn't seem to be getting worse. Drink lots of water. Cheers.

Hi Michael,
I'm not on treatment yet, however in the process of starting it up, it takes a while as you already know. I hope the very best for you while you are fighting the dragon. I've heard so many positive things about the new drugs coming out. Since you've been on this treatment ten days and no side effects, it is reasonable to assume your body is handling this well. Keep on posting info for us so we can discuss and support you at this time. Take care
Mike

Hi Michael,

thats a great trial to be on! Can't wait for your w2 results. How long with tx last? 6w, 8w or 12w?

With all respect to Abbvie, Viekira pak is a pretty weak response to competition (Gilead foremost). ****tail with Ritonavir as a booster definetly doesn't sounds like that DAA combo (Dasabuvir, Ombitasvir, Paritaprevir) is working enough on it's own. Sofosbuvir is much better NS5B inhibitor than Dasabuvir.

You gonna kick dragon's ass easy man. Sof+Vel on it's own, from previous clinical trials is a great combo, but you even have GS-9857 as NS3/4A inhibitor. I presume Gilead is exploring shorter version of tx with this combo (6-12w). Can't wait for your results! Enjoy the ride! :)


best

Hi again, Michael, thanks for posting those results, they`ll be a good baseline for comparison as you go through your treatment.

The elevation in your liver enzymes, ALT and AST, shows that there`s some inflammation going on, which is what we`d expect to see with an active infection.  You do have low platelets but that`s not unusual with cirrhosis/advanced fibrosis.  You have a low viral load but that tends to fluctuate quite a lot anyway.

I`m sure you`ll see an improvement in those numbers once you get your first set of results, these drugs start working very quickly! 

Keep up updated...  smile

Thanks Wendy, Jill, and Dave,

Here's the few blood panel readings I personally will be following carefully. These are from end of December before I started treatment. 

ALT: 65
AST: 54
Eosinophil 7.5 a little high (range:0.0-6.8)
Platelets 86 (Low)
HCV RNA: 336,000

HGB, HCT, RBC, WBC, and everything else in normal ranges. AFP is in normal range also.

Any feedbacks or comments greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

Thanks Dave,

I'll call it the Nuke Option Train :). After exhaustive reading of these 3 compounds, I believe it will do the trick and exterminate any vermin roaches roaming around. The good news is that so far I'm feeling absolutely no side effects from this combo. I might add that I'm in excellent physical condition and do endurance running/inline skating. Helps lots.

Hi Web2mass,

Welcome to the forum!

That's a wicked (in a good way) combination you're taking.

I'm sure you'll be hearing from TK, he's moving through Tx right now via the Silver Bullet Train (at least that's what I'm callin' it).

Best of luck and welcome aboard!

 

Dave

Hi Everyone,

New treatment - 2nd. round: Sofosbuvir, Velpatasvir, GS-9857. 1 pill a day with food. I'm in the Deferred Treatment Substudy. This will be the one for all genotypes that will hit the market later this year or early next year I assume.

Its been 10 days and no side effects whatsoever. Vieira Pak + Ribavirin treatment relapsed @ 12 weeks EOT this past fall. Hopefully this one does its magic. I'm doing all I can on my own but need this. Anybody else failed to cure on Viekira Pak? Feedback or insight from anyone would be gratefully appreciated.
