roval commitment to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The comparison of the PEGINTRON and Pegasys combination therapy regimens was added to the study because no randomized, controlled head-to-head study of the two available peginterferon regimens had been conducted to date. Cross-study comparisons and retrospective analyses of previous data are difficult to interpret because of differences in study designs, patient populations and assay limits.

John McHutchison, M.D., and Mark Sulkowski, M.D., are the co-principal investigators of the IDEAL study.

The Publication Committee was responsible for the preparation of the prespecified data analysis plan for the statistical analysis conducted for the primary publication of the study results.
