Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 0 0
Percentage of Participants With Sustained Virological Response (SVR) - SVR was defined as the percentage of participants with undetectable HCV RNA at 24 weeks after the completion of the study treatment. The negative assessment was required to be the last one collected at or after week 36 (ie, on or after study Day 253) for the 16-week treatment group or at or after week 44 (ie, on or after study Day 309) for the 24-week treatment group.

Percentage of Participants With Virological Response at The End of Study Treatment - Virological response was defined as the percentage of participants with undetectable HCV RNA at the completion of the study treatment.

Summary
Brief summary
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of different durations of treatment with
PEGASYS combined with ribavirin in patients with CHC genotype 2 or 3 infection who have never
previously received interferon (IFN) therapy. The anticipated time on study treatment is 3-12
months and the target sample size is 500+ individuals.
