Correlation of serum ribavirin concentration with pretreatment renal function estimates in patients with chronic hepatitis C receiving combination antiviral therapy with peginterferon and ribavirin.

Abstract

Serum ribavirin concentration is an important factor in antiviral therapy in combination with peginterferon (PEG-IFN) and ribavirin for patients with chronic hepatitis C in terms of both beneficial and adverse effects. We evaluated whether the serum ribavirin concentration can be predicted on the basis of renal function estimates. Serum creatinine and… (More)
