Is Hep C Treatment Safe w/ Opioid Replacement?
« on: February 09, 2015, 01:58:09 pm »
Yep. Check out this report from July 2014:

http://www.hepmag.com/articles/AbbVie_methadone_2501_25950.shtml

"AbbVie’s '3D' hepatitis C virus regimen (Now known as Viekira Pak) is safe for use with opioid replacement therapy to treat drug addiction. Study participants were taking either methadone or buprenorphine, with or without naloxone.

After 12 weeks of therapy, all but one participant achieved a sustained virologic response 12 weeks after completing treatment (SVR12, considered a cure), for a response rate of 97.4 percent."
