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.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This 4 arm study will compare the efficacy and safety of PEGASYS given for 24 or 48 weeks, and at doses of 90 or 180 micrograms weekly, in the treatment of HBeAg positive patients with chr...
A Study of the Pharmacokinetics And Pharmacodynamics of Intravenously Administered Pegasys (Peginterferon Alfa-2a) in Patients With Chronic Hepatitis C And Previous Non-Response to Pegylated Interferon And Ribavirin Combination Therapy
In this randomized, cross-over, open label study the correlation of Pegasys (peginterferon alfa-2a) pharmacokinetics after intravenous (iv) and subcutaneous (sc) administration with viral ...
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 ...
This 2 arm open-label study will assess the safety and tolerability of combination treatment with Peginterferon alfa (Pegasys) and Ribavirin (Copegus) in patients with chronic hepatitis C....
This randomized, parallel arm study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of Pegasys (peginterferon alfa-2a) in combination with 2 different doses of ribavirin in patients with chronic hep...
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...
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 ...
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-...
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 ...
Hepatitis delta virus (HDV) infection of humans was first reported in 1977, and now it is now estimated that 15-20 million people are infected worldwide. Infection with HDV can be an acute or chronic ...
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.
