This retrospective study will evaluate the association of biomarkers and the treatment response of patients with chronic hepatitis B, who have completed therapy with Pegasys (peginterferon alfa-2a) ± lamivudine. For the analysis stored serum samples obtained from patients will be used; no actual patients are involved.
There is one SNP
