The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
This study is to evaluate the safety of telbivudine for up to 21 months of open-label treatment in patients with chronic hepatitis B who have completed the CLDT600A2407 trial. Patients treated with telbivudine during core phase will continue telbivudine and patients treated with entecavir during core phase will be switched to telbivudine if the patient is willing to enroll this study.
An Extension to A Randomized, Open-label, Controlled, Multicenter, Exploratory Trial to Characterize the Results of Daily Oral Administration of Telbivudine (LDT600) 600 mg or Entecavir (ETV) 0.5 mg Given Over 12 Weeks on the Kinetics of Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) DNA in Adults With HBeAg-positive, Compensated Chronic Hepatitis B (CHB) (An Open-label Multicenter, follow-on Trial of the Safety of Oral Administration of Telbivudine (LDT600) 600 mg Over 21 Months in Adults With HBeAg-positive Ompensated Chronic Hepatitis B (CHB))
