Avatar n tn I am currently enrolled in the Schering trial for their Protease Inhibitor SCH 503034 and wanted to find out if there are others Medhelp readers who are in this trial and to ask how you are doing. This is a Phase ll trial for Genotype 1, treatment naive patients. There are 5 arms to the study: 1. SOC for 48 weeks. If virus still detectable at week 24, patient has the option to continue with SOC plus SCH 503034 for up to another 54 weeks depending on . 2.
Avatar n tn I have hep c I'm a 1a my viro is 7-9 million+. I started on 0.28 peg-intron, 800mg rebetol. Week 5 my red blood cell count started dropping from 13 to 10 at week 9 my rbc was 9.6 so they change my rebetol to 600mgs. After one week we rechecked my rbc and it is still going down it's 9.4 I go in tue. for more blood work. I'm on the IdealStudy. Just wanting to know if anyone can give me any info on what to maybe expect to happen. I feel like I'm breezing through the study at the present time.
Avatar n tn A quote from Schering's open letter to the HCV community. Dated 1-14-02: Schering-Plough firmly believes that implementing the Access Assurance program was the medically prudent and responsible course to take. The overwhelming response to PEG-INTRON and REBETOL combination therapy since its launch has recently led the company to conclude that demand for PEG-INTRON would exceed its near-term ability to ensure supply of product in the United States at current new-patient enrollment rates.

Avatar f tn Pegasys (peginterferon alfa-2a) and Copegus (ribavirin) which is Roche and Pegintron (peginterferon alfa-2b) and Rebetol (ribavirin) which is Schering-Plough. Both are considered the current SOC.

Avatar f tn Pegasys (alpha2A) and PegIntron (alpha 2B). They are made by two difference manufacturers (Roche and Schering). As for the Copegus, Rebetol, Ribabvirin; it's all the same and they are bio-equivalents of ribavirin and there is no difference. So, the only difference is the Peg (Pegasys and PegIntron) and those two have more similatities than differences.

189269 tn?1189759425 I gather you are on PegIntron and Rebetol then? I am also not comfortable with the fact that Schering-Plough doses ribavirin differently than Roche. Rebetol is dosed: 85 kg: 1200 mg Copegus is dosed: or = 75 kg: 1200 mg You are however very close to the next range. 86 kg equals 189.2 lbs.
Avatar n tn My husband had his 1st treatment 2-27. He is on a Schering-Plough clinical trial for sch 503034, a protease inhibitor. Has anyone been involved in a previous trial phase with this drug?

Avatar f tn My doc won't let me increase the PegIntron, since the limit for 120 mcg is 76 kg. Also the dosage of Rebetol is different from Copegus. At 76 kg you get 1200 mg Copegus, but only 1000 mg Rebetol. Why? Does not the lower dosage of PegIntron and Rebetol compared to the dosage of Pegasys (180 mcg for all) and Copegus reduce one's chances of SVR?
Avatar m tn SGP) today reported that a planned interim analysis of a Phase II study showed that boceprevir, its investigational oral hepatitis C protease inhibitor, in combination with peginterferon and ribavirin markedly increased sustained virologic response (SVR) rates with 28 weeks of therapy and nearly doubled SVR with 48 weeks of therapy compared to current standard of care, peginterferon and ribavirin (control group) for 48 weeks.
90502 tn?1196367605 Has this happened with anyone else? I somehow don't feel right taking 1/2 Roche and 1/2 Schering. Comments? Two weeks and 3 days to SHOT DAY and beginning of treatment. Thank you for whatever insight you can give to this.

Avatar m tn The important results of this clinical study with PEGINTRON and REBETOL reflect the ongoing efforts of Schering-Plough to define optimal dose and treatment schedules for specific HCV patient groups," said Robert J. Spiegel, M.D., chief medical officer and senior vice president of medical affairs, Schering-Plough Research Institute.
168732 tn?1311715679 Peg-Intron/Rebetol is my cocktail these days and I recall reading somewhere the number of people on tx at the same time. Schering states that 230,000 have been prescribed Peg-Intron to date. Just asking how many are on treatments- all of them - at any one time these days in the U.S. and worldwide. Just curious (can't find clear answer on searches). Have a good weekend, and go BEARS! G.
158241 tn?1237723123 The two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies will evaluate the efficacy of boceprevir in combination with PEGINTRON(TM) (peginterferon alfa-2b) and REBETOL(R) (ribavirin, USP) compared to standard of care with PEGINTRON and REBETOL alone. The Company said the two pivotal studies will run concurrently and are projected to enroll a total of more than 1,400 patients at U.S. and international sites. Comment drofi: The study designs seem to be professional.
Avatar n tn day 1 began with labs, 2 tylenol, Peg-Intron and the Rebetol. The Rebetol dose is weight based and started at 400mg for the first 2 weeks, 800mg for weeks 3 and 4 and week 5 the full dose. there is no SOC for TP patients. this study protocol does allow rescue drugs such as Procrit and Neupogen. It also has allowed me when my hemoglobin fell below 9 or hemocrit below 27 to lower my Riba by 200mg.
