The best Canadian site with the most up-to-date information on everything hepc related is my good friend Sandi's
My name is Darlene Morrow and I started this website in 1997 when I first began treatment. At that time it was interferon only but in 9 months I qualified for the clinical trials with Rebetron. I didn't substain a response and have suffered permanent nerve damage in my neck as a result.This makes doing computer work painful. I will therefore not be maintaining this site.
There's a lot of good info here. Background stuff and general hepc info. I hope it will be useful to people. I have managed to scrap enough cash together to keep the domain name registered for the next 7 years. So HepC VSG. will get you to the place where I am hosting the website. I have run out of room on Geocities so I am transferring things over.
I wish good luck to everyone and hope they find a cure for this disease in our lifetime.
Today's date is April 8, 2004. I have currently been undergoing hyperthermia treatment in The Netherlands for the hepatitis C. This hyperthermia was a clinical trial and was a one time only operation where the entire body's blood was heated to 41.8C over a period of 7 hours.
This was followed by induction therapy using regular interferon 10 million units a day plus ribavirin (1000mg/day) for one week, 5 million units of interferon plus ribavirin for an additional week then 1.5 micrograms of PEG interferon weekly plus 1000mg daily ribavirin.
I have been having a lot of trouble with the drug side effects but I did go PCR undetectable within one month of beginning treatment and have remained so. I will complete the therapy at the end of March 2004 and will update everyone then.
When I find the energy, I will post some additional info on the hyperthermia treatment. Click here for the full story on the hyperthermia. See www.hepcvsg.org/hyperthermia.htm more info.
