Thalidomide Plus Peginterferon and Ribavirin in Patients With Interferon Resistance (TRITAL)
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
Patients with chronic hepatitis C, genotype 1 and non-responders to standard treatment for hepatitis C.
- ascertain the rate of sustained response in patients with hepatitis C, genotype 1 with peginterferon + ribavirin resistance.
- To know the response rate in 12 weeks
- Describe the tolerance and safety of thalidomide in combination with peginterferon and ribavirin.
DESIGN OF TEST Pilot Study:
The single arm study will:
1. Thalidomide 200 mg and peg-interferon alfa 2b (based on weight: 50-120 mcg / week) + ribavirin (based on weight: 1000-1200mg / day)
Be tracked for 24 weeks after treatment.
Suspended treatment of 12 weeks in patients who have failed a drop of HCV RNA> 2 log.
Patients who have been suspended for any reason, the treatment will be followed during 24 weeks, to assess safety parameters.
