Schering-Plough Supported CME Symposium
Defining the Course in the Management of HCV: A Case Based Approach Sunday, May 18, 6:30-9:30 p.m., San Diego Marriott Hotel and Marina, Hall 3-6. A world-renowned faculty will present and discuss recent data and how this information may impact clinical management decisions. Among the educational objectives of this program is to define the role of viral clearance as a predictor of HCV treatment response.
In the United States, PEGINTRON is indicated for use alone or with
ribavirin for the treatment of chronic hepatitis
