Thanks for the links! I particularly liked seeing the interest in discovering and documenting the patient quality of life in the first Gilead study. It's about time they started listening to and considering the after-effects of these treatments. It will be very helpful and educational for patients, but especially or those in the medical community that refuse to understand or believe the impact these drugs can have both short and long term.

The study on fibrosis comparison should be worthwhile as well, albeit a small number of participants. The expansion of available procedures is always good to hear about. I'm a fan of non invasive testing, but you notice they still compare everything to the tried and (mostly) true biopsy. I think it'll be around for a long time yet.

I moved this post to the Clinical Trial section, hope you don't mind.
