Brief Summary:
This multicenter, open-label, uncontrolled study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of increasing the dose of peginterferon alfa-2a (Pegasys) in participants with Genotype 1/4/5/6 CHC and an early non-response to a standard course of peginterferon alfa-2a plus ribavirin. The study will consist of screening (4 weeks), treatment (32 weeks), and follow-up (24 weeks).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Peginterferon Alfa-2a + Ribavirin
Participants will receive 360 microgram (mcg) of Peginterferon Alfa-2a subcutaneous (SC) once a week plus ribavirin (1000 - 1200 milligram per day [mg/day] orally as a split dose in the morning and the evening based on the participant's body weight) for 32 weeks.
Drug: Ribavirin
Other Name: Copegus, Ro 20-9963

Drug: peginterferon alfa-2a
Other Name: Pegasys, Ro 25-8310

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants Achieving Virologic Response, as measured by ultrasensitive Roche HCV TaqMan Test [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants Achieving Sustained Virologic Response (SVR), as measured by ultrasensitive Roche HCV TaqMan Test [ Time Frame: Week 56 ]
  2. Percentage of Participants Achieving End-of-treatment Response, as measured by ultrasensitive Roche HCV TaqMan Test [ Time Frame: Week 32 ]
  3. Mean Log Change From Baseline to Week 2, 4, 8, 12, 32, and 56 in Hepatitis C Virus Ribonucleic Acid (HCV-RNA) Viral Load [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 2, 4, 8, 12, 32, 56 ]
  4. Number of Participants With Adverse Events and Serious Adverse [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 56 ]
