    Hi There
    i am a 26 year male monoinfected with hcv genotype 3a. My viral load was 76000 IU/Ml. I have injected 17 pegylated interferons with daily oral ribavirin 1200 mg. After 12 shots, My viral load became less than 12 IU/Ml. My ultrasoound report is normal. Also my Alt, Ast and platelets are normal.
    My question is that how many injections i have to inject more? and am i susceptible to relapse? Please explain
    Best Regards
