Yes, yes you are right. A slow response may translate into a higher relapse rate. Both high EVRs of SPRINT-1 AND Study-107 do not indicate high SVRs because of relatively low RVRs.
I was not trying to draw a conclusion at such an early stage, just throwing the information out there.It's not clear whether RVR (4 weeks) or EVR (12 weeks) is more important for the long term.I pulled this from one study* at EASL 2008."Conclusions. RVR is the strongest predictor (96%-100%) for SVR. Absence of EVR is the strongest predictor (75%-97%) of non-SVR."*ASSESSMENT OF VIROLOGICAL RESPONSE AT BOTH WEEK 4 AND WEEK 12 OPTIMIZES PREDICTION OF PEGINTERFERON ALFA PLUS RIBAVIRIN.TREATMENT IN PATIENTS WITH CHRONIC HEPATITIS C.
