OBJECTIVES 1) to identify pretreatment variables predictive of nonresponse to interferon-alpha (IFN-alpha) in patients with chronic hepatitis C, and 2) to establish a prognostic index in these groups using receiver operating characteristics curve analysis. METHODS 132 patients were treated with IFN-alpha at a dose of 3 megaunits three times a week for 3… CONTINUE READING
