Approximately one-third of patients have durable responses after finite (48-week) treatment with peginterferon alfa-2a. The ability to identify patients likely to respond would be particularly useful in resource-limited settings.

It has yet to be firmly established whether host IFNL3 (IL28B) genotype influences interferon responsiveness in patients with chronic hepatitis B. We investigated associations between single-nucleotid...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between interleukin-21 (IL-21) and interleukin-21 receptor (IL-21R) polymorphisms and the response to peginterferon alfa (PEG-IFN α) therapy in ...
This was a retrospective study to develop and validate an optical coherence tomography (OCT)-based calcium scoring system to predict stent under-expansion.
In 2012, a new Knee Society Knee Scoring System (KSS) was developed and validated to address the needs for a scoring system that better encompasses the expectations, satisfaction, and physical involve...
Retained placenta (RP) is an obstetric complication of third stage of labour. We aimed to evaluate risk factors for RP and to propose a scoring system in order to predict this potentially fatal disord...
This study evaluated the clinical response of the efficacy and safety of the combination therapy of peginterferon alfa-2a and ribavirin, compared with an antiviral treatment-free group in ...
Currently, peginterferon alfa-2a or oral nucleos(t)ides are approved for the treatment with HBeAg negative CHB, with the overall ALT normalization and HBV viral suppression far from satisf...
Based on previous experience with peginterferon alfa-2b/ribavirin in combination with boceprevir, the combination with peginterferon alfa-2a/ribavirin and boceprevir is expected to be safe...
This observational study will assess predictors of early on-treatment and sustained virological response in treatment-naïve patients with chronic hepatitis C initiated on treatment with P...
This multicenter, open-label, uncontrolled study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of increasing the dose of peginterferon alfa-2a (Pegasys) in participants with Genotype 1/4/5/6 CHC a...
A recombinant alfa interferon consisting of 165 amino acids with arginine at positions 23 and 34. It is used extensively as an antiviral and antineoplastic agent.
A recombinant alfa interferon consisting of 165 amino acids with lysine at position 23 and histidine at position 34. It is used extensively as an antiviral and antineoplastic agent.
A recombinant alfa interferon consisting of 165 amino acid residues with arginine in position 23 and histidine in position 34. It is used extensively as an antiviral and antineoplastic agent.
This recombinant erythropoietin, a 165-amino acid glycoprotein (about 62% protein and 38% carbohydrate), regulates red blood cell production. Epoetin alfa is produced by Chinese hamster ovary cells into which the human erythropoietin gene has been inserted. (USP Dictionary of USAN and International Drug Names, 1996).
Tabular numerical representations of sequence motifs displaying their variability as likelihood values for each possible residue at each position in a sequence. Position-specific scoring matrices (PSSMs) are calculated from position frequency matrices.
