Randomized Controlled Trial of Lymphoblastoid Interferon-α for Chronic Hepatitis C; Early Disappearance of HCV RNA is Essential for Sustained Response
Interferon (IFN) therapy has been shown to be efficacious in some patients with chronic hepatitis C [1–4]. In responders, normal alanine aminotransferase (ALT) levels and disappearance of hepatitis C virus (HCV) from serum continues for several years and probably permanently after IFN. Such a response is called sustained response, and has been thought to benefit the prognosis of the patients.
