to determine the dose of PEG-IFN [alpha]-2A in patients with CHC who had not received INF treatment before, SVR was 10% with a dose of 45[micro]g once a week, and they reported that there was not a significant difference in terms of SVR when compared to IFN
[alpha]-2A treatment administered in three doses a week.
)-based treatment often is not suitable for many patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) because of comorbid depression and the risk of increased suicidal thoughts.
