  Purpose

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of ascending doses of Hanferon™ in combination with ribavirin (RBV). The secondary objective of this study is to define the PK and PD of ascending doses of Hanferon™ in combination with RBV. The exploratory objective of this study is to make a preliminary assessment of Hanferon™ efficacy in combination with RBV.
