Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants That Reported a Serious Adverse Event [ Time Frame: 24 weeks after administration of PegIntron Injection ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Serious adverse events (SAE's) were events that resulted in death, were life threatening, required hospitalization, caused disability, and congenital anomaly. All SAE's related or unrelated to the study drug and those SAE's that were determined by the investigator, using specific criteria defined in the protocol, were reported.

  • Number of Participants That Reported a Non Serious Adverse Event Above 5 Percent Threshold [ Time Frame: 24 weeks after administration of PegIntron Injection. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Adverse events (AE's) were events that resulted in unintended signs, symptoms or illnesses. All non-serious adverse events related or unrelated to the study drug and those AE's determined by the investigator, using specific criteria defined in the protocol, were reported.
