BACKGROUND & AIMS Genotype 6 chronic hepatitis C (HCV) is encountered predominantly in Southeast Asia and data on optimal treatment strategy is limited. This study was aimed at assessing the rate and predictors of sustained virological response (SVR) in genotype 6 chronic HCV following 48 and 24 weeks of pegylated interferon and ribavirin therapy.
