An Observational Study of Dual and Triple Therapies Based on Pegasys (Peginterferon Alfa-2a) in Patients With Chronic Hepatitis C
Multi-Center, Non-Interventional Study, on the Efficacy of Dual and Triple Therapies Based on Pegylated Interferon Alfa-2a for the Treatment of Chronic Hepatitis C Patients
This multi-center, observational study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of dual and triple therapies based on Pegasys (peginterferon alfa-2a) in patients with chronic hepatitis C. Patients receiving treatment with either Pegasys plus ribavirin or Pegasys plus ribavirin plus telaprevir/boceprevir will be observed for the duration of their treatment and for up to 24 weeks of follow-up.
