  Purpose

This single arm study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of ribavirin in combination with PEGASYS in patients with chronic hepatitis C. Patients will rec eive ribavirin 800mg, or 1000-1200mg po daily, according to HCV genotype and bod y weight (< and >75kg)in combination with PEGASYS 180micrograms sc weekly. The a nticipated time on study treatment is 3-12 months, and the target sample size is >500 individuals.
