Schering-Plough Highlights PEGINTRON(TM) and Boceprevir Data Presentations at European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) Annual Meeting
Date:4/17/2008

is C patients with moderate to severe fibrosis or cirrhosis who failed prior treatment with interferon alpha (pegylated or non-pegylated) and ribavirin combination therapy were retreated with PEGINTRON combination therapy. PEGINTRON combination therapy is the first and only pegylated interferon combination therapy approved in the European Union (EU) for retreating both hepatitis C relapsers and nonresponders.

Researchers also will present the final results of the COPILOT study, which evaluated the investigational use of low-dose PEGINTRON as maintenance therapy in chronic hepatitis C nonresponder patients with fibrosis or cirrhosis. The goal of maintenance therapy in this very hard-to-treat patient population is to prevent or delay the progression of liver disease, liver cancer or death.

Schering-Plough also is exploring novel therapeutic approaches to treating hepatitis C with boceprevir, its investigational oral HCV protease inhibitor currently in Phase II clinical development. Oral presentations of boceprevir data will include interim results from the HCV SPRINT-1 study in treatment-naive hepatitis C patients and final results of the HCV RESPOND-1 study in patients who were "null" responders to previous peginterferon and ribavirin combination therapy.
