BACKGROUND & AIMS: Interferon is the only effective treatment for chronic hepatitis D virus (HDV) infection. No rules have been set for stopping treatment based on viral kinetics. We analyzed data from an international study of hepatitis D treatment to identify factors associated with outcomes of pegylated interferon treatment, with and without adefovir.
