Charles Gore, The Hepatatis C Trust

My name is Charles Gore and I am the Chief Executive of the Hepatitis C Trust. 

It has been really nice to have been involved with STOP-HCV because they have really concentrated on trying to come up with answers that met the questions that patients have, not just the more theoretical research questions but really things that will benefit us.  It is about why do I not respond to treatment, because if the treatment doesn’t work, patients really want to know, is it something I have done or is it just that I have been unlucky because I have, for example, particular genetic markers in me that just makes treatment not work and maybe that means that I need different combinations of treatment?  But there may be examples in which the ways this project will come up with results that will really make a difference and make it better for us as patients.
