So exactly how much longer before the new treatments are released? I know that there are no longer any clinical trials going on in all the places that I checked, so they must be finished with that part. Just wondering.

Trials are open and recruiting for both naive and nonresponder HCV patients for other protease/polymerase inhibitors.
