A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Boceprevir Added to Standard of Care Therapy in Previously Treated Participants With Chronic Hepatitis C Genotype 1 and Cirrhosis (MK-3034-105)
This study is being done to find out if the addition of boceprevir to standard of care (SOC) treatment with peginterferon alfa-2b (PegIFN-2b) + ribavirin (RBV) is effective for participants with chronic hepatitis C (CHC) genotype 1 and cirrhosis who were not successfully treated by previous SOC. All participants will receive treatment with SOC alone for 4 weeks and then boceprevir will be added to the treatment regimen for 44 additional weeks of combined treatment.

Experimental: PegIFN-2b + RBV+ boceprevir
Participants will receive PegIFN-2b (once weekly, 1.5 µg/kg subcutaneously) + RBV (capsules, orally, weight-based dose from 800-1400 mg/day divided into two daily doses) for 4 weeks and then will receive 44 additional weeks of treatment with PegIFN-2b (once weekly, 1.5 µg/kg subcutaneously) + RBV (capsules, orally, weight-based dose from 800-1400 mg/day divided into two daily doses) + boceprevir (capsules, orally, 800 mg three times per day).
