2014-12-05 09:53:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of PEGASYS (peginterferon alfa- 2a) in patients with HBeAg positive chronic hepatitis B. Patients will be strati fied into group A (treatment naïve patients) or B (YMDD mutant patients). All p atients will receive PEGASYS 180 micrograms subcutaneously once weekly for 48 we eks, followed by 24 weeks of treatment-free follow up.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
