In brief: Not really

I am assuming you are asking about hepatits c treatment.
Infergen is an old type of interferon. Data suggest that Infergen has little or no benefit after Pegasys (peginterferon alfa 2a) failure. There are new oral medications. These medications (pills) along with Pegasys (peginterferon alfa 2a) and Ribavirin has very good response rate, if you are infected with type i hepatitis c virus. Response rate is doubled from previous treatment.
