Results
One hundred ninety-eight of 199 patients were evaluable for efficacy and safety.  bLF treatment was well tolerated and no serious toxicities were observed.  A virologic response was achieved in 14 of 97 patients (14.4%) in the bLF group, and 19 of 101 (18.8%) in the placebo group.  There was no significant difference in virologic response rates between the two groups (-4.4%, 95% confidence interval -14.8 to 6.1).  In addition, bLF intake did not have any favorable effect on the serum ALT level.  The virologic responses were not different between two groups in any subgroup analysis.  In conclusion, orally administered bLF does not demonstrate any significant efficacy in patients with chronic hepatitis C.
