Listen to Shelly & NEVER give up. Diet & lifestyle will be the key now to achieving a better quality of life. Get Dr. Sandra Cabot's book The Liver Cleanse Diet. It will do wonders.
I know of no protease inhibitor with or without Peg that works to clear HCV. Its an idea that had its time as part of the HIV cocktail - but there's no evidence to suggest it will work to achieve a zero PCR SVR for HCV.
There is a last ditch treatment that few people do. Its called Infergen (non-peglated interferon - peglation weakens the molecule) EVERY DAY & a big jump in Riba. Its so intense you will need Dr. approval to go on it. Its almost a kill you to bring you back treatment - its that strong. But you may want to look it up on the internet anyway. I know of nothing new outside the peg/riba combo treatment on the horizon.
