MK-5172 With Peg-Interferon and Ribavirin in Participants With Chronic Genotype 2 or 3 Hepatitis C (MK-5172-012 AM1)
A Randomized, Partially Double-Blind, Active-Controlled, Dose-Ranging Estimation Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of Different Regimens of MK-5172 When Administered Concomitantly With Pegylated-Interferon and Ribavirin in Treatment-Naive Patients With Chronic Genotype 2 or 3 Hepatitis C Virus Infection

This study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, and antiviral activity of MK-5172 when administered concomitantly with peginterferon alfa-2b (Peg-IFN) and ribavirin (RBV) to treatment-naïve participants with chronic genotype 2 (GT2) or genotype 3 (GT3) hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections.
