How Long Does Treatment Last?

Treatment time varies depending on a number of factors, particularly what genotype you have and whether or not you have cirrhosis. For most patients taking PEG/riba therapy, the drugs are administered for either 48 weeks (HCV genotype 1) or for 24 weeks (HCV genotypes 2 and 3). Triple therapy – for genotype 1 – can shorten that time for some people.
