Treating hepatitis C virus (HCV) among those with genotypes 2 through 5 of the virus is largely cost-effective given current drug pricing and could even save money if such medications are heavily discounted.

Publishing their findings in Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics, researchers conducted a systematic search of electronic databases for published studies that provided cost-effectiveness estimates for the treatment of genotypes 2 through 6 of hep C with direct-acting antivirals (DAAs).

Hi Everybody. Hope all is well. Haven’t posted for awhile, but still SVR. I had a rough journey too, fails Harvoni and was tested for resistance, which I was. There are many new drugs for us that are RAV. I had a mutated NS5A. Was lucky to get into a Gilead trial that finally worked, and the med is now available. Vosevi is the name of the drug.
Anyone who is resistant to DAA, this may be the med for you. So never give up, feels so good to have the dragon gone. Love to all.
