    Treatment for me with Interferon-A and ribavirin back in 1997 faeild(I never took the Pegalyated version). I am Type 1 and have been waiting for this ever since. Obviously great news. Has there been any indication as to when this treatment will become available, and if there will be sufficient supply to meet demand in the near term. I’m actually worried that I may have to wait longer. My hope is to begin this treatment by July and finish by the end of the year.
