Phase II, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Study of Nitazoxanide in Combination With Peginterferon Alfa-2a and Ribavirin in Patients With Hepatitis C Who Have Failed to Respond to a Prior Course of Peginterferon and Ribavirin
The purpose of this study is to determine if nitazoxanide in combination with peginterferon alfa-2a and ribavirin is safe and effective in treating chronic hepatitis C in patients that have previously failed to respond to treatment with peginterferon and ribavirin.
Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check clinicaltrials.gov to see if other locations are recruiting.
