: Does anyone have any knowledge about the newest treatments for hepatitis C? (Peginton(TM))?
PegIntron is the same as IntronA. The data that has been released (very little from a drug company who would crow very loud if there was good stuff to report!) shows that the peg is equivalent to the IntronA. Nothing to be excited about.
Roche's Pegasys is showing promise, and Infergen alone (high dose daily) is showing really good results on the genotype 1's which are the hardest to treat.
Just goes to show you what great marketing can do for a mediocre drug!
I hope this helps.
