  Purpose

The Chinese patients with chronic hepatitis C have a different genetic background, which had been demonstrated to significantly influence their responses to pegylated interferon and ribavirin. In this study, Chinese patients with Hepatitis C Virus genotype 1, 2/3, 6 infection were treated with pegylated interferon and ribavirin. Their response was compared amongst different genotypes.
