High-Dose IFN and PEG IFN for Induction Therapy in Difficult to Treat Genotype 1 Patients With Chronic HCV

2014-07-23 21:35:14 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to compare pharmacokinetics by IFN assays and pharmacodynamics by patient's HCVRNA suppression of 360 mug peginterferon QW, 9 MU interferon daily or 4,5 MU interferon daily in combination with 180 mug peginterferon QW in the first 4 weeks of treatment. Comparison of virological breakthrough/relapse rate after dose adjustments and sustained virological response rate will be assessed by the type of induction.

Efficacy of Albumin Interferon Alfa-2b With Ribavirin Compared With Peg-IFN Alfa-2a With Ribavirin in IFN Naive Patients

This is a phase 3, randomized, multi-center study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of albumin interferon alfa 2b (alb-IFN)in combination with ribavirin compared with peginterferon alfa-...

Boceprevir in Combination With Peginterferon Alfa-2a and Ribavirin in Subjects With Chronic Hepatitis C Genotype 1 Who Failed Prior Treatment With Peginterferon/Ribavirin (Study P05685AM2)

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...

REPEAT Study - A Study of PEGASYS (Peginterferon Alfa-2a (40KD)) Therapy in Combination With COPEGUS (Ribavirin) in Patients With Chronic Hepatitis C (CHC) Who Did Not Respond to Previous PegIntron (Peginterferon Alfa-2b (12KD))/Ribavirin Combination Ther

This 4 arm study is designed for patients with CHC who have not responded to peg interferon alfa-2b (12KD)/ribavirin combination therapy. In these patients, the effects of lengthening the ...

A Study of Peginterferon Alfa-2a in Combination With Ribavirin in Patients With Chronic Hepatitis C

This study evaluated the efficacy and safety of the combination of peginterferon alfa-2a plus ribavirin in treatment-naïve patients with HCV genotype 1b infection, compared with peginterf...

Pegintron Induction Therapy in HCV Non-Responders

The purpose of this study is to compare the sustained virological response rate at 24 weeks after the end of experimental treatment (induction and 72 weeks) to that of standard 48 weeks tr...

No association between IFNL3 (IL28B) genotype and response to peginterferon alfa-2a in HBeAg-positive or -negative chronic hepatitis B.

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...

An easy-to-use baseline scoring system to predict response to peginterferon alfa-2a in patients with chronic hepatitis B in resource-limited settings.

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 ...

HBsAg loss with Pegylated-interferon alfa-2a in hepatitis B patients with partial response to nucleos(t)-ide analog: new switch study.

Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) loss is seldom achieved with nucleos(t)ide analog (NA) therapy in chronic hepatitis B patients but may be enhanced by switching to finite pegylated-interferon (Peg-...

Population PK-PD model of pegylated interferon alfa-2a in healthy Korean men.

Pegylated interferon alfa-2a (PEG-IFN alfa-2a), which was developed to overcome the disadvantages of conventional formulations, is widely prescribed for hepatitis B or C virus infection. It is charact...

Switching from Epoetin Alfa (Epogen®) to Epoetin Alfa-Epbx (RetacritTM) Using a Specified Dosing Algorithm: A Randomized, Non-Inferiority Study in Adults on Hemodialysis.

For patients with anemia undergoing hemodialysis, erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) are typically dosed via precise algorithms. Using one such algorithm, we assessed the maintenance of hemoglob...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).

A highly purified recombinant glycoprotein form of human THYROID-STIMULATING HORMONE, produced by recombinant DNA technology comprising two non-covalently linked subunits, an alpha subunit of 92 amino acid residues containing two N-linked glycosylation sites, and a beta subunit of 118 residues containing one N-linked glycosylation site. The amino acid sequence of thyrotropin alfa is identical to that of human pituitary thyroid stimulating hormone.
