A Study to Evaluate the Safety Antiviral Effect and Pharmacokinetics of Celgosivir in Combination With Peginterferon Alfa-2b and Ribavirin in Treatment-Na ve Patients With Chronic Hepatitis C

The objective of this study is to undertake an initial evaluation of the safety, tolerability, antiviral effect, and pharmacokinetics of celgosivir in combination with peginterferon alfa-2b and ribavirin in patients with chronic HCV infection.

Phase

Continuing Treatment With Pegasys and Copegus

Prospective, multicentre, randomized, open-label comparative study According to our national guideline of management of patient with chronic viral hepatitis, patients need to stop therapy if they do not achieve response. These patients can enter to the study at two time points: - at week 16, if HCV RNS PCR measured ...

Phase

Pegylated-Interferon and Ribavirin Plus Metformin in the Treatment of Chronic HCV Infection and Insulin Resistance

Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is associated with an increased risk for the development of type 2 diabetes and HCV infection itself may promote insulin resistance, irrespective of the severity of liver disease. - In patients with HCV infection, an increase in fasting insulin levels is associated with the ...

Prevention of Depression With Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Chronic Carriers of Hepatitis C Treated With Interferon Alpha.

Omega-3 fatty acids are known as an alternative treatment for different conditions, including mental conditions, such as depression. We assume that combining omega-3 with the treatment by interferon alpha may prevent the development of depression, which is quite a common side effect of the interferon alpha.

Phase

RIBAJUSTE Clinical Trial Investigating the Efficacy and Safety of Dose Adaptation of Ribavirin

The aim of this study is to compare two therapeutical strategies concerning the combination therapy (peginterferon alfa-2a and ribavirin) in naïve patients with chronic hepatitis C of genotype 1. "Reference" strategy corresponding to standards of care recommended by the French consensus conference versus "Test" strategy corresponding to adaptation strategy of ...

Phase

Phase IV Study to Evaluate the Efficacy/Safety to Extend Treatment and High Dose of Ribavirin in co-Infected Patients

The PRESCO study (ribavirin dose 1000-1200 mg/day) emphasized that optimal ribavirin exposure seems to be crucial to maximize sustained virological response and minimize the incidence of relapses after treatment discontinuations. Recent reports showed that it is beneficial to extend the treatment duration in patients without rapid virological response at 4 ...

Phase

Pegylated-Interferon and Ribavirin in Hepatitis C Patients With Persistently Normal Alanine Aminotransferase Levels

Patients with chronic hepatitis C with persistently normal alanine aminotransferase (ALT) levels have been generally excluded from treatment, because the strong conviction that normal ALT would be synonymous of absence of liver damage. However, recent studies have demonstrated marked liver fibrosis, including cirrhosis, in patients with HCV and persistently normal ...

Phase

Genetic Polymorphisms of Interleukin-10 and TNF- on Outcome of HCV-Related Chronic Liver Disease

The prognosis of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV)infeciton varies from minimal progressive disease to cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma. Host genetic factors contribute to disease severity. It is known that cytokine gene (including tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and interleukin-10 (IL-10) polymorphism affect disease prognosis.This study aims to assess the effect of ...

Phase N/A

Safety Profiles of Liver Biopsy in Hemodialysis Patients With Chronic Viral Hepatitis Pre-treated With Vasopressin

Chronic viral hepatitis is common in dialysis patients, with the reported prevalence and annual incidence of 3-80% and 2.9%, respectively. Currently, percutaneous liver biopsy (PLB) remains the gold standard for grading necroinflammation and staging fibrosis in patients with liver diseases. In addition, liver histology can help clinicians determine the eligibility ...

Phase N/A

Vitamin D Treatment in Patients With Chronic Hepatitis C

We hypothesize that patients with Ch.HCV have a low level of vitamin D, and that by raising their vitamin D levels by adding it to their standard treament of Pegylated Interferon and Ribavirin, there will be an increase in their sustained virological response.
