This 3 arm study will assess the safety and efficacy of combination treatment with PEGASYS + Copegus in patients with chronic hepatitis C. Three groups of patients will be studied; 1) those with elevated ALT level, 2) those with normal ALT level, and 3) those with HIV co-infection. Patients with genotype 1, 4, 5 or 6 will receive PEGASYS 180 micrograms sc once weekly + Copegus 1000-1200mg po daily (dependent on body weight) for 48 weeks, those with genotype 2 or 3 will receive PEGASYS 180 micrograms sc once weekly + Copegus 800mg po daily for 24 weeks, and all patients with HIV co-infection will receive PEGASYS 180 micrograms sc once weekly + Copegus 800mg po daily for 48 weeks. The anticipated time on study treatment is 3-12 months, and the target sample size is 100-500 individuals.

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.
