  Purpose

This study is being conducted to compare the safety, effectiveness and tolerance of valopicitabine (NM283) when used alone and when valopicitabine is used together with pegylated interferon in hepatitis C treatment failure patients. These results will be compared against the results of treatment with pegylated interferon plus ribavirin, the current standard therapy for treatment of hepatitis C viral infection.
