    GILDreport

    Sorry, but the science overwhelmingly supports SVR12. The support was validated during the approval of both PIs actually. 22% relapse would be terrible if the SVR was 50%... but if everyone who doesn't hit SVR relapses.. that is actually pretty good. It just means the virus was nearly eradicated but there was not quite enough drug pressure to do so. If there was say 12% relapse, but 10% failure on-treatment, it would be worse... that would mean the virus is escaping despite constant pressure. 12 weeks is very close here and actually viable for more than just PR intolerant folks. I have no skin in this now... just know the science too well to see these statements that could be misleading to people. I am sure it was not ill-intentioned. It is a complex beast.
