AIM We aimed to compare the rate of sustained virologic response (SVR) to treatment with interferon-alfa (IFN) between(More)
Approximately 170 million people are infected with hepatitis C, and the sustained virological response rate to treatment with pegylated interferon and ribavirin is 30-50%. In an attempt to improve the chances of cure, boceprevir is being added to therapy, but it is associated with an increased incidence of adverse events. We herein report a case of acute(More)
