Regularly Scheduled NAb Testing Arm
Subjects will be scheduled for 5 study visits over the course of 12 months and any NAbs test results will be available to the investigator during the study.
Procedure: NAbs testing
blood drawn for a Binding Antibody (BAb) and Neutralizing Antibody (NAb) test.
Usual Care Arm
Subjects will be scheduled for 2 study visits over the course of 12 months and any NAbs test results will be unknown by the investigator until the conclusion of the subject's study participation.
- Proportion of subjects whose high dose IFN therapy had changed in the regularly scheduled NAbs testing arm versus the Usual Care Arm [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
- The nature of any therapy/management change in each arm [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
- Reason for change in therapy/management [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA
