For genotype 1 (GT1) chronic hepatitis C (hep C), taken with or without ribavirin
Actual VIEKIRA Patient
Think of it this way: The hep C virus is turning your liver cells, one by one, into very small factories that make virus copies. The virus can make about 1 trillion copies of itself every day, which can cause damage to your liver. VIEKIRA attacks the virus at 3 different points in the copy-making process. VIEKIRA helps stop the virus from multiplying.
1. Hep C virus makes copies.
2. VIEKIRA blocks the copy-making process.
3. VIEKIRA helps stop the virus from making more copies.
