2 doctors agree

In brief: Yeah! 2 new ones

2 new drugs, protease inhibitor-type drugs approved.
Added to the standard interferon/ribavirin rx. Different dose schedules. Big help in improving response rates, even in prior relapsers and nonresponders to rx; might decrease duration of rx. More in the drug research pipeline.
