This is a Phase 4, retrospective and observational, multicenter, national (Brazil), open, noncomparative, and nonrandomized study, which does not have visits. This study will be conducted in accordance to Good Clinical Practices. The procedure will be the review of medical records of patients who have already completed 12 weeks of treatment of chronic hepatitis C with peginterferon alfa-2b and ribavirin. This review will take place after the subjects have signed the informed consent form authorizing collection of these data. The collection of data for virological response after Week 12 will be collected prospectively through the review of medical records after the subjects have completed their entire treatment and follow-up period.
