The PharmGKB summary:  peginterferon-α pathway has been published in the Pharmacogenetics and Genomics Journal. Peginterferon-α (pegylated interferon-α or PEG-IFN-α) is an antiviral drug used to treat chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. The PharmGKB review summarizes the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of peginterferon-α and also discusses genetic variations around the IFNL3 locus (formerly known as IL28B) affecting the viral clearance and clinical responses to peginterferon-α based therapy.
