Sustained virological response after treatment in patients with chronic hepatitis C infection – a five year follow up

Peginterferon α-2a and ribavirin combination therapy achieves a sustained virological response (SVR) in patients with chronic hepatitis C. Little is know about long-term durability of hepatitis C virus – Ribonucleic acid (HCV-RNA) negativity in patient treated with pegylated interferon and ribavirin therapy.
