      Whoever it was a few days ago in another thread who said that Phase 3 results are "always worse than Phase 2" must be doing some reassessment at the moment.

        Does anyone on this board know anything about the treatment of HCV?

        I am going to say not. First off, the days of getting rid of interferon are a long, long way off. You might beat down the virus with 2 antivirals, but you will need both interferon and rbv to hold an SVR. Second, when a compound goes into Phase 3, the chances of the results looking better than a Phase 2 are slim to none. Third, VX950 will be a good thing for the hepatitis C patients, but it will also come with a cost (rash, dosing of Q8 / comliance issues, and cost). Rating :
