Sensitive HCV RNA polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing should be used to confirm the diagnosis of acute HCV infection in patients with clinical suspicion who remain HCVAb-negative on initial evaluation. During the acute phase, spontaneous clearance occurs in 16–46% of patients usually by 12–16 weeks after exposure [1,2]. qxd 30 2/2/10 13:27 Page 30 Today’s Therapies While in established chronic infection interferon-based antiviral therapy only cures 46–54% of patients, therapy in the acute phase has a much greater chance of success, with greater than 80% sustained virological response (SVR) rates [3].

However, the use of a higher dose regimen was associated with an increased rate of haematological adverse events. Extended treatment duration Intensified treatment with higher fixed-dose induction of peginterferon and/or longer treatment duration may increase SVR rates in patients with prior non-response to peginterferon alfa and ribavirin treatment. The REPEAT trial compared both strategies in prior non-responders to peginterferon alfa-2b and ribavirin [4]. Patients (N = 942) were randomized into four arms: those in arms A and B received peginterferon alfa-2a induction (360 mg/week) for 12 weeks followed by peginterferon alfa-2a 180 mg/week for a further 60 or 36 weeks (total duration 72 and 48 weeks, respectively); those in arms C and D received peginterferon alfa-2a 180 mg/week for 72 and 48 weeks, respectively.
