Former National Champion amateur wrestler and retired pro wrestler Devon Nicholson began his first day of his second Hep C treatment on October 15th 2012. His first treatment (administered in 09-10) was unsuccessful despite causing many side effects.
Nicholson's new treatment is still in the experimental phase for his genotype and includes the new Hep C wonder drug Incivek (Telaprivir) along with and increased dose of the standard treatment of Interferon and Ribavirin. Although testing is still early on Incivek's effectiveness on Nicholson's Genotype (2) it has greatly increased the cure rate when used to treat Hep C positive individuals of Genotype 1. Hep C now kills more people than AIDS and is the number one reason for liver transplants in the US.
