"The results of the Albuferon non-responder study demonstrated that Albuferon treatment at doses up to 1800 mcg every two weeks had an acceptable long-term safety profile and produced an overall sustained virologic response (SVR) rate of 17% in these patients," said David Nelson, M.D., Associate Professor of Medicine, Medical Director of Liver Transplantation, and Chief of the Hepatobiliary Disease Section, University of Florida. "In the difficult to treat subgroup of genotype 1 chronic hepatitis C patients who previously failed to respond to treatment with pegylated interferon and ribavirin, Albuferon treatment produced an overall SVR rate of 11%."
