      Trial Summary

      This randomized, controlled, parallel group, open-label multicenter study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of a combination of pegylated interferon alfa-2A (Pegasys) plus lamivudine or entecavir compared with an untreated control group in participants with HBeAg positive CHB in the immune tolerant phase.

      Eligibility Criteria

      All Gender
      ≥ 3 Years & ≤ 17 Years Age
      No Healthy Volunteers
      Inclusion Criteria
      • Positive for HBsAg and HBeAg for more than 6 months prior to baseline
      • Detectable HBV-DNA (>20,000 IU/mL) as measured by polymerization chain reaction (PCR) or hybridization on at least 2 occasions at least one month apart with the latest determination obtained less than or equal to (</=) 42 days prior to baseline
      • Compensated liver disease (Child-Pugh Class A clinical classification)
      • Either Liver biopsy performed within 2 years prior to baseline showing no or minimal fibrosis (Liver Biopsy Scores and stable normal ALT levels (less than or equal to upper limit of normal [ULN]) during the 6 months leading up to baseline (including two separate occasions at least 1 month apart over the 6 months prior to baseline). Screening ALT levels must be normal (</= ULN) OR Stable normal ALT levels (</= ULN), during the 1 year leading up to baseline (including three separate occasions at least 1 month apart over the 1 year prior to baseline) and no signs of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), advanced fibrosis/cirrhosis, or splenomegaly on liver abdominal ultrasound at screening. Screening ALT levels must be normal (</= ULN)
      Exclusion Criteria
      • Participants who have received investigational drugs or licensed treatments with anti HBV activity (Exception: Participants who have had a limited [</= 7-day] course of acyclovir for herpetic lesions more than 1 month before the study baseline visit are not excluded)
      • Participants who have participated in any other clinical trial or who have received any investigational drug within 6 months prior to baseline
      • Known hypersensitivity to interferon (IFN), pegylated interferon-alfa-2a or lamivudine or entecavir

      • Advanced fibrosis or cirrhosis
      • Suspicion of HCC on liver abdominal ultrasound (all patients to have liver abdominal ultrasound within 6 months prior to baseline)
      • History or other evidence of a medical condition associated with chronic liver disease other than CHB including metabolic liver diseases such as hemochromatosis, Wilson's disease or alpha-1 anti-trypsin deficiency
