The purpose of this observational study was to provide summary data from participants who relapsed at the end of the follow-up phase after 24 weeks of treatment with standard care PegIntron plus ribavirin in Part 1 of the study (NCT00709228) and who then received retreatment during Part 2 of the study. Relapse was defined as having a positive virology result at the Week 24 post-treatment follow-up, after a negative result at the Week 24 end-of-treatment time point. Hepatitis C Virus Ribonucleic Acid (HCV-RNA) levels were measured at Day 1 and Weeks 12, 24, and 48 of the extension, and at Follow-up Week 24.

All study activities were consistent with the EU Directive 2001/20/EC section for non-interventional studies (i.e. observational studies). Medicinal products are prescribed in the usual manner in accordance with the terms of the marketing authorization. The assignment of the participant to a particular therapeutic strategy is not decided in advance by the trial protocol but falls within current practice and the prescription of the medicine is clearly separated from the decision to include the patient in the study.
