The Role of Ribavirin in Treating HCV in Co-infected MSM In group 2, –Sustained virological response (SVR) rates were significantly higher for peg-IFN+RBV (31 of 33) peg-IFN mono-therapy (6 of 10) (94% vs 60%, respectively; p = 0.02). –SVR was significantly associated with Peg-IFN+RBV combination therapy (p = 0.037) and rapid virological response (p ) In group 1 –SVR was only significantly associated with rapid virological response (p ) Boesecke C. et al.
