Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Virologic Response [ Time Frame: up to 96 weeks post treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Sustained Virologic Response (SVR) rates will be compared between the two arms of treatment through measured HCV RNA levels after 24 weeks, 48 weeks and 96 weeks after completion of treatment.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Adverse events [ Time Frame: 24, 48, and 96 weeks post treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Comparison of rates and severity of adverse events between the two study arms

  • Effect of baseline variables on treatment outcome [ Time Frame: 24, 48, and 96 weeks post treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Analyze the effects of baseline variables on treatment outcome between the two groups- age, race, social economic status.

Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
Previously treated
Data from patients who were previously treated with Peg, interferon (IFN), alfa, and ribavirin
Previously untreated
Records of patients who have never received anti-HCV treatment.

Detailed Description:

The objective of the study is to compare the effect of adding 2 oral hepatitis C virus (HCV) protease inhibitors, telaprevir versus boceprevir, as part of current standard treatment regimen with (pegylated-interferon-alpha + ribavirin) for HCV Genotype-1 infection. Data will be obtained from medical records of consenting patients.
