This is an observational, multicenter, nationwide study where information will be collected on the follow-up of patients with chronic hepatitis C who have a viral response at the end of treatment with peginterferon alfa-2b plus ribavirin (administered according to the directions on the products' labeling). No administration of treatment is planned as a result of study enrollment.
Patient enrollment will be sequential to avoid patient selection bias attributable to the investigator. Each site must enroll 7-8 patients to achieve the calculated sample size so that study objectives can be met.
Patients will be selected by the investigator during the last days of treatment with peginterferon alfa-2b plus ribavirin. Only those patients with a viral response at the end of treatment who sign the informed consent form are eligible.

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.
