Dosage Pack Size & Price Qty


PegIntron is a prescription medication that comes as an injectible treatment for people with long-term hepatitis C aged 3-17 years, or for adults who have never received treatment, or where previous treatment has failed. The active ingredient, Peginterferon alfa-2b is part of a group called interferons, which are natural substances produced by the body to attack against viral infections. It is thought that interferons act as substances that modify the way that the immune system works and also blocks the multiplication of viruses. In PegIntron, the interferon alfa-2b has been “attached” to a chemical called polyethylene glycol. This action decreases the rate at which the substance is removed from the body, allowing the medication to be given less frequently.

Hepatitis C is considered chronic when the body is unable to get rid of the hepatitis C virus. Some people are successful in clearing the virus from their body in a few months, but most hepatitis C infections become chronic. Although there may be no initial symptoms, long term infection will lead to scarring of the liver, called cirrhosis, as well as potential liver cancer and liver failure. The liver is responsible for removing harmful chemicals from your blood, fighting infection, digesting food, storing energy, as well as nutrients and vitamins. Hepatitis C is a blood borne virus and can be transmitted through intravenous drug use, unsafe medical practices, high-risk sexual behavior, blood transfusion, and mother to infant.

If any serious side effects are experienced, like vision difficulties, new or worse liver symptoms, uneven heartbeats, and feeling short of breath, cough, or a high fever with bloody diarrhea and severe stomach pain, contact a physician right away.
