Avatar m tn 16 Ribavirin The synthetic purine nucleoside Ribavirin rapidly enters eukaryotic cells and after intracellular phosphorylation exhibits virustatic activity against a broad spectrum of DNA and RNA viruses.25 Several studies have been conducted to evaluate ribavirin monotherapy in daily doses of 600-1,200 mg in the treatment of chronic hepatitis C.26-28 While all trials consistently showed a decrease in aminotransferase levels, no virologic end-of-treatment responses were observed.
Avatar n tn Remarkably, SVR was observed in more than 90% of patients who had undetectable HCV RNA after 4 weeks of peginterferon alfa plus ribavirin. Conversely, SVR was observed in less that 50% of patients who achieved a 2-log10 reduction in HCV RNA level but still had detectable viremia after 12 weeks of peginterferon alfa and ribavirin therapy. Among this group of late responders, the low SVR rate is largely the result of very high rates of viral relapse after stopping therapy.
Avatar f tn I saw it today. I liked it. It was pretty suspenseful them finding the cure. They mentioned our drug "Ribavirin" in it, which I found interesting. There's alot of stars in it; Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, James Earl Jones, That lady from Titanic whose name in my brain fog I can't remember, Elliot Gould (remember him?) and that guy Jude Law (is that his name?), anyhow, brain fog you know...

Avatar n tn I imagine that if you make sure you're wife doesn't handle the ribavirin (Rebetron), and you wash your hands after touching it, and you use condoms, that the ribavirin shouldn't get transferred to your wife. Should it get transferred to your wife, it could harm the fetus. That said, none of us are doctors or pharmacists here, so you should really ask your doctor and/or pharmacist the same question before making any decisions.
Avatar n tn Just my opinion. There are dozens of chemicals that are inhaled and ingested into your blood stream, each one of these chemicals has to be broken down by the liver and kidneys. Then there is the stress on your immune system. I smoked for 33 years and after I got the result of my biopsy it did not take a brain surgeon to figure out I needed to quit. It has been 5 years now. I agree with Chev, tx is not the time to quit.

Avatar m tn Isn't one of the drug companies doing trials on an inhaled interferon? Might be something to look into. Didn't know infergen was not available to you.Don't know your weight, but believe double dosing trials are also ongoing for those above 85kg by Schering I think..
568322 tn?1370169040 I explained to him that the liver was the organ that got rid of everything we put in our body whether it was drugs, medications, alcohol, creams we rubbed on our skin and the pollution we inhaled. I showed him a picture of a tired liver on the coloring book and told him that's what happened to our liver when we made it work too hard.
29837 tn?1414538248 I was one shot of Interferon per week, Ribavirin at 1200mg daily and Victrelis at 2400mg daily, in other words, one shot per week and 18 pills per day. I went from 3.2 million viral count, down to 300 in 16 weeks. The only problem was that treatment of this magnitude should have been stopped at 12 weeks if I did not clear. My doctor and I agreed to go another month in spite of the agony and torture because I had already failed four treatments. Here is a log of side effects I kept.
Avatar m tn X and Gilead Sciences Inc (GILD.O), and GlaxoSmithKline's (GSK.L) (GSK.N) and Biota's (BTA.AX) Relenza, an inhaled drug, can treat influenza if given quickly. They have been shown to work against this new flu strain. Gibbs said Obama, who recently returned from a trip to Mexico, had shown no symptoms of the virus and had therefore not been tested.

163305 tn?1333672171 “[F]or notoriously difficult to treat conditions such as HIV neuropathy, … cannabinergic pain medicines, particularly inhaled cannabinoid botanicals, are one of the only treatments that have been shown to be safe and effective with the highest levels of evidence,” the review states. Five to ten percent of the US population is estimated to suffer from neuropathic pain at some point during their lives.
Avatar n tn The use of peginterferon alone, or in combination with ribavirin, points to a cure for hepatitis C, the leading cause of cirrhosis, liver cancer and the need for liver transplant, a Virginia Commonwealth University researcher said today. Mitchell Shiffman, M.D.
Avatar f tn Also, ozone therapy is not an FDA approved treatment for hepatitis C, only interferon monotherapy along with interferon+ribavirin combo therapy. Plus, if you just think about it, the whole notion of exposing large quantities of your blood to concentrated ozone during a series of relatively brief sessions, is unsound.
