Tig-Thank you for explaining that again.† No many how many times I hear that it's okay if you don't get UND in the 4 or 8 week blood draw, I always appreciate having it repeated.† Eventually, it will†sink in!!biggrin

I have seen this slow roll out to SVR occur in members here. It has to be difficult to see others reach the big ZERO in 4-6 weeks and you be either quantified or <15 but detected. The truth is, it happens more than youíre aware. This is one reason why some doctors wonít do a viral load until 12 weeks post treatment. If the CMP/LFTís fall back into a normal range and stay there, in addition to a downward spiraling viral load, youíre in good shape. Itís not an easy realization to accept, but itís true. I think itís good to know and not something many are aware of. We always hear about the 4 week (some even 2) wonders, but rarely do we hear about people celebrating this scenario. If this happens to you, the reader, remember it and donít despair.†

Recent article (and studies) about having a detectable load at EOT, or being "slow to become undetectable" during DAA treatment - that it does not equate to mean the patient will not reach SVR. Most do go on to being SVR. †(Article draws from a couple good reference studies - the subjects analyzed had done a variety of DAA therapies, sof-based, such as sof/ledi, etc.)
