Experimental: Pegylated-interferon alfa-2a plus ribavirin
Participants received pegylated-interferon alfa-2a 180 µg/week subcutaneously plus ribavirin 1000 mg/day orally for patients weighing < 75 kg or 1200 mg/day for patients weighing ≥ 75 kg for 48 weeks.
Drug: Pegylated-interferon alfa-2a
Pegylated-interferon alfa-2a was administered subcutaneously once weekly.
Participants received ribavirin with food, as the bioavailability of ribavirin is increased when taken with food. Ribavirin was administered as split doses, that is, 2 doses were given 12 hours apart, 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening. Participants received either 1000 or 1200 mg ribavirin per day according to body weight: 400 mg (2 tablets) in the morning and 600 mg (3 tablets) in the evening for participants weighing < 75 kg or 600 mg (3 tablets) in the morning and 600 mg (3 tablets) in the evening for participants weighing ≥ 75 kg.
- Percentage of Participants Who Experienced at Least 1 Adverse Event. [ Time Frame: Baseline through 24 weeks after the end of treatment (up to 72 weeks) ]An adverse event is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient administered a pharmaceutical product and which does not necessarily have to have a causal relationship with the treatment. An adverse event can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding, for example), symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a pharmaceutical product, whether or not considered related to the pharmaceutical product. Preexisting conditions which worsen during a study are also considered as adverse events.
