A Study of Administration of Peginterferon Alfa-2a [Pegasys] by Autoinjector Versus Pre-filled Syringe in Patients With Chronic Hepatitis C

2014-07-23 21:09:49 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This randomized, cross-over, open label study will compare the tolerability and handling of application of peginterferon alfa-2a [Pegasys] by autoinjector versus pre-filled syringe in patients with chronic hepatitis C, either on treatment with peginterferon alfa-2a for at least 12 weeks or treatment-naïve for peginterferon alfa-2a. Patients will be randomized to self-injection of 180mcg peginterferon alfa-2a once a week using either an autoinjector or a prefilled syringe for 3 weeks, then switch to use the other method of injection for another 3 weeks. Anticipated time on study treatment is 6 weeks. Target sample size is <100 patients.

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...

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.
