Abstract

This Study was carried out to determine the End of Treatment Response (ETR) of a Chinese Source Human Recombinant Interferon Alpha 2a and Ribavirin in chronic hepatitis C affected patients, selected from different combined military hospitals in Pakistan. In this study hepatitis affected noncirrhotic patients from different combined military hospitals in Pakistan were selected from September 2010 to April 2011. Sixty seven patients were selected based on the inclusion exclusion criteria. Fifty seven patients completed the 24 weeks therapy for Hepatitis C. The Patients (n=57) had persistently raised serum aminotransferase (ALT), positive HCV antibodies by 3rd generation ELISA, positive HCV RNA by polymerase chain reaction. Study group patients underwent 24 weeks therapy with a Chinese source Interferon and Ribavirin and subsequently followed up for the End of Treatment Response by the assay of HCV RNA by polymerase chain reaction at 24 weeks. Patients of chronic hepatitis C (44 males and 13 females) had age range 20-56 years. After 24 weeks of therapy with a Chinese source Interferon and Ribavirin, 73.7% patients showed a favourable ETR manifested by Negative HCV RNA polymerase chain reaction.Treatment with a Chinese source Interferon and Ribavirin combination therapy for 24 weeks produces a favourable End of Treatment Response in patients of chronic hepatitis C from different military hospitals in Pakistan.
