|Primary Completion Date :||March 26, 2014|
|Study Completion Date :||November 4, 2015|
Experimental: Participants receiving PegIFN alfa-2b
Participants receive PegIFN alfa-2b 6 µg/kg subcutaneously (SC) on Day 1 of each week for 8 weeks (Induction) and then 3 µg/kg SC once weekly for up to 252 weeks (Maintenance).
|Biological: PegIFN alfa-2b|
- Number of Participants Experiencing Dose-limiting Toxicities (DLTs) - Induction Phase [ Time Frame: From first dose to end of induction phase; up to 8 Weeks ]A DLT was an event (clinical or laboratory) that resulted in a change in the given dose.
- Safety: Number of Participants Experiencing Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: From first dose through follow-up; up to 265 Weeks ]An adverse event was any unfavorable and unintended change in the structure, function, or chemistry of the body whether or not considered related to the study treatment.
- Number of Participants Discontinuing Study Drug Because of AEs [ Time Frame: From first dose to last dose of treatment; up to 260 Weeks ]An adverse event was any unfavorable and unintended change in the structure, function, or chemistry of the body whether or not considered related to the study treatment.
