    Analysts see Vertex as top hepatitis C drug developer

    jren,

    maybe I will try with you. Being over 50 and just barely under 60, I feel the need to try again most acutely. To put it bluntly, it sucks. I hate the idea of interferon again, but I hate the ides of doing nothing even more. My greatest fear is that I will end up with the worst profile for treating...over 60, stage 3, a woman and geno one. And yet, I'm cruising to that profile so very quickly.

    You are a brave soul. I need to think about exactly what you are...if telaprevir is close by the end of next year, I can wait. If not, well, hello interferon.

    You gotta live in Hep C land to understand what the hell it is like. to know the virus is taking your liver bit by bit and there is not really anything effective to treat it is so very AWFUL and can even make 10% seem okay. Good luck, jren, perhaps we will be in the same boat soon.

    as for rah, i really have to learn to control my enthusiasm better and to not be so cross. You are EXACTLY right about the financial versus medication perspective, I need to remember to be kinder.

    Willow
