Achieving an antiviral response at a reasonable cost is a challenge in the treatment of patients with chronic hepatitis C. A previous study indicated that consensus interferon with ribavirin had promising activity against hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 1. The objective of this study was to determine the virologic response with consensus interferon or pegylated interferon α-2b plus weight-ribavirin in patients chronically infected with HCV genotype 1. Intention-to-treat analysis showed… CONTINUE READING
