    SPRINT/PROVE comparison

    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.
