  Purpose

We propose a largely retrospective study with short-term prospective follow-up in a subgroup of patients who have not yet been treated with 48 weeks of entecavir following partial response to adefovir. The aim of the study is to describe sequential virologic response to adefovir and entecavir.


Condition Intervention

Further study details as provided by Pacific Health Foundation:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • HBV DNA PCR after 12 weeks of entecavir from the time of medication switching: percent of patients with <2log drop in HBV DNA and percent of patients with complete viral suppression during adefovir versus during entecavir. [ Time Frame: 48 weeks or after ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • HBV DNA PCR after 24 weeks of entecavir from the time of medication switching. [ Time Frame: 48 weeks or after ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • HBV DNA PCR after 48 weeks of entecavir from the time of medication switching. [ Time Frame: 48 weeks or after ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • BR and CR at 24 and 48 weeks of therapy with entecavir. [ Time Frame: 48 weeks or after. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • BR and CR for longer duration of therapy if available. [ Time Frame: 48 weeks or after. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 120
Study Start Date: May 2008
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2013

Detailed Description:

Amendment was made, and approved by WIRB in January 2009, to this protocol: We propose a largely retrospective study with short-term prospective follow-up in a subgroup of patients who have not yet been treated with 96 weeks of entecavir following adefovir treatment. The aim of the study is to describe sequential virologic response to adefovir and entecavir.
