When I first started Sherring Plough's combination peg intron for
genotype 1 my viral load was 600,000/ml.. This was after being deemed
to have Hep C for 20 years. After 6 mos of living hell and not responding,
my viral load was 100,000.
Now in three years I've gone from 100,000
to 41 million! This isn't an arithemetic increase, it's exponential!
In three years I've gotten worse than I did in 20!
It's as if the drugs damaged whatever immune response I had to the
virus. Are there other non-responders who have experienced this?
Is there any study to monitor the long term impact after treatment?
Are there any class
action suits against Sherring Plough for making the
disease worse? I know nexis is tough to prove but statistically
the numbers may show there is a nexis.
Any thoughts you could provide would be helpful.
