AIM We estimated viral dynamics after serum hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA became negative and assessed the relation between the estimated viral load at the end of treatment (EVE) index and the response to the combination therapy with peginterferon alpha-2b plus ribavirin. METHODS Patients with chronic HCV, genotype 1b, and a high viral load were treated(More)
