Thank you, I reached undetected with my immune system after being still detectable at week 12 with a reading of <12!! The sensitivity of the text in uk is 12. In the USA is it higher? Which would have put me at undetected at week 8!! Like dragonslayer stated harvoni works very differently from previous treatments! Wonder what my percentages are of staying undetected!!
