Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
The study was planned to be conducted in 2 parts (Part A and Part B), which would use separate groups of participants. However, the study was terminated early (12 weeks after last dose of study drug in Part A) and Part B was not conducted.

Reporting Groups
  Description
Cohort 1 (13-17 Years): Telaprevir + Peg-IFN-alfa-2b + RBV Participants aged 13 to 17 years received telaprevir twice daily for 12 weeks either as a film coated tablet (15 milligram per kilogram [mg/kg] of body weight) or as a chewable tablet (14 mg/kg of body weight) in combination with pegylated interferon alfa 2b (Peg-IFN-alfa-2b) 60 microgram per meter square (mcg/m^2) subcutaneous injection weekly and ribavirin (RBV) 200 mg capsules or 40 milligram per milliliter (mg/mL) solution orally twice daily with a maximum dose of 1200 mg per day. Peg-IFN-alfa-2b and RBV were administered for 24 weeks in participants who achieved extended rapid virologic response (eRVR) or for 48 weeks in participants who did not achieve eRVR. eRVR was defined as undetectable hepatitis C virus ribonucleic acid (HCV RNA) levels at Week 4 and Week 12.
Cohort 2 (7-12 Years): Telaprevir + Peg-IFN-alfa-2b + RBV Participants aged 7 to 12 years received telaprevir twice daily for 12 weeks as a chewable tablet (16 mg/kg of body weight) in combination with Peg-IFN-alfa-2b 60 mcg/m^2 subcutaneous injection weekly and RBV 200-mg capsules or 40 mg/mL solution orally twice daily with a maximum dose of 1200 mg per day. Peg-IFN-alfa-2b and RBV were administered for 24 weeks in participants who achieved eRVR or for 48 weeks in participants who did not achieve eRVR. eRVR was defined as undetectable HCV RNA levels at Week 4 and Week 12.
Cohort 3 (3-6 Years): Telaprevir + Peg-IFN-alfa-2b + RBV Participants aged 3 to 6 years received telaprevir twice daily for 12 weeks as a chewable tablet (18 mg/kg of body weight) in combination with Peg-IFN-alfa-2b 60 mcg/m^2 subcutaneous injection weekly and RBV 200-mg capsules or 40 mg/mL solution orally twice daily with a maximum dose of 1200 mg per day. Peg-IFN-alfa-2b and RBV were administered for 24 weeks in participants who achieved eRVR or for 48 weeks in participants who did not achieve eRVR. eRVR was defined as undetectable HCV RNA levels at Week 4 and Week 12.

  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Study was terminated early because it was determined that telaprevir/Peg-IFN/RBV regimen did not present a meaningful therapeutic treatment over existing interferon-free regimens and was unlikely to be used for participants aged 3 to 17 years.
