  Purpose
This prospective observational study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of peginterferon alfa-2a in combination with ribavirin in participants with chronic hepatitis C, including participants with compensated liver cirrhosis, in clinical practice.

Condition Intervention
Hepatitis C, Chronic Drug: Peginterferon alfa-2a Drug: Ribavirin

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Open-label, Multicenter, Non-Comparative, Prospective Observational Study to Evaluate Efficacy and Safety of Combined Ribavirin and Peginterferon Alfa-2a (40 kDa) Therapy in Patients With Chronic Hepatitis C (CHC) or Compensated Liver Cirrhosis in Real Clinical Practice

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Undetectable Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Ribonucleic Acid (RNA) (less than [<] 50 International Units per Milliliter [IU/mL]) 24 Weeks Post Therapy Completion [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 24 Weeks Post Therapy Completion (approximately 3.5 years) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Naive Participants With Sustained Virological Response (SVR)) and Negative HCV RNA (< 50 IU/mL) at Week 4 and 12 [ Time Frame: Week 4, 12 ]
  • Percentage of Previously Treated Participants With SVR and Negative HCV RNA (< 50 IU/mL) at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
  • Percentage of Previously Treated Participants With SVR and Decrease in HCV RNA by Greater Than or Equal to (>/=) 2 Logarithm 10 From Baseline at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ]
  • Percentage of Naive Participants With SVR and Decrease in HCV RNA by >/= 2 Logarithm 10 From Baseline at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ]
  • Percentage of Previously Treated Participants With SVR, Decrease in HCV RNA by Negative HCV RNA (<50 IU/mL) at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
  • Percentage of Naive Participants With SVR, Decrease in HCV RNA by Negative HCV RNA (<50 IU/mL) at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
  • Percentage of Participants With SVR and Dose Reduction of Ribavirin or Peginterferon alfa-2a due to Adverse Event [ Time Frame: Baseline up to approximately 3.5 years ]
  • Percentage of Participants With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Baseline up to approximately 3.5 years ]
