This study involves treatment with boceprevir or placebo in combination with PegIntron (PEG) + Ribavirin (RBV) (weight-based dosing [WBD]) in previously untreated adult subjects with chron...
This is a Phase 2, randomized, 7-arm , open-label safety and efficacy study comparing treatment with PegIntron (1.5 µg/kg QW) plus ribavirin (800-1400 mg/day) to treatment with SCH 503034...
This study involves treatment with boceprevir in combination with PegIntron (PEG2b) + ribavirin (RBV) (weight-based dosing [WBD]) in previously untreated adult subjects with chronic hepati...
Short Duration Versus Standard Response-Guided Therapy With Boceprevir Combined With PegIntron and Ribavirin in Previously Untreated Non-Cirrhotic Asian Participants With Chronic HCV Genotype 1 (MK-3034-107)
The purpose of this study is to estimate the difference in the efficacy between a 16-week treatment regimen of boceprevir (BOC) in combination with peg-intron alpha 2b (PEG2b) plus ribavir...
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...
HEV infection can lead to chronic hepatitis in immunosuppressed patients; extrahepatic manifestations are rarely seen. Here, we report a 13-year-old renal transplant patient with chronic hepatitis E a...
In 2013, combination therapy using peginterferon, ribavirin, and boceprevir or telaprevir was introduced to treat hepatitis C virus genotype 1 infection in Brazil. The effectiveness of this therapy in...
Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is the most common cause of viral hepatitis worldwide. Genotypes 1 and 2 (GT1 and GT2) are mainly present in developing countries, while GT3 and GT4 are prevalent in developed ...
In the era of highly effective direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) for treatment of patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, ribavirin (RBV) is still considered beneficial in certain patie...
Some individuals with hepatitis C virus infection treated with direct-acting antivirals require ribavirin to maximize sustained virologic response rates. We describe the clinical management of ribavir...
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans that is caused by HEPATITIS C VIRUS lasting six months or more. Chronic hepatitis C can lead to LIVER CIRRHOSIS.
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER with ongoing hepatocellular injury for 6 months or more, characterized by NECROSIS of HEPATOCYTES and inflammatory cell (LEUKOCYTES) infiltration. Chronic hepatitis can be caused by viruses, medications, autoimmune diseases, and other unknown factors.
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans caused by HEPATITIS DELTA VIRUS in conjunction with HEPATITIS B VIRUS and lasting six months or more.
A closely related group of antigens found in the plasma only during the infective phase of hepatitis B or in virulent chronic hepatitis B, probably indicating active virus replication; there are three subtypes which may exist in a complex with immunoglobulins G.
A defective virus, containing particles of RNA nucleoprotein in virion-like form, present in patients with acute hepatitis B and chronic hepatitis. It requires the presence of a hepadnavirus for full replication. This is the lone species in the genus Deltavirus.
