    I currently have Hep-C and went thru the pills and shot once a week.To get to the point I go to University of ILL liver center.My last vist a week ago they were very excited about 2 new drugs that will be out by the start of June 1 is Buprenorphine and the other is Naloxone. the bad part is even thou it's in pill form, you still have to take a large dose of Interfurion. Im a geno type 1 and a relapser they are saying in the human trials on people the success rate is very high of the disease not comming back.All you people in the same situation talk to your Dr's. Good luck to all and peace-Bruce
