However, the new drug VX-950 is showing tremendous promise with close to a 100% cure rate for genotypes 1a and 1b, the hardest to cure
. I am a 1b who failed standard treatment
three times, once with just interferon, the second time with Pegylated Interferon and Ribavirin, and last year with Infergen and Ribavirin.
However, I do see lots of people on these boards getting cured with current treatments, including Infergen, meaning the virus is UND (undetectable) in their blood.
