  Purpose

This single arm study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of PEGASYS in treatm ent-naive Baltic patients with HBeAg-positive chronic HBV. All patients will rec eive PEGASYS 180 micrograms s.c. once weekly. Following 48 weeks of treatment, t here will be a 24 week period of treatment-free follow-up. The anticipated time on study treatment is 3-12 months, and the target sample size is <100 individual s.
