HCV Investigational Therapies


High efficacy observed regardless of presence of cirrhosis, although patients with high baseline HCV RNA level were more likely to experience virologic failure.

Released: April 25, 2015

Efficacy appeared reduced in cirrhotic patients although both groups tolerated treatment well.

Released: April 29, 2015

12-week regimen of daclatasvir, sofosbuvir, and ribavirin associated with SVR12 rates of 83% overall in patients with advanced cirrhosis and 94% in patients with posttransplantation recurrence, high SVR rates across genotypes.

Released: April 28, 2015

Shortening treatment duration to 8 weeks resulted in reduced rates of cure and more frequent relapse.

Released: April 29, 2015

High efficacy observed in all patient subgroups, including hemodialysis patients.

Released: April 29, 2015

DAA-experienced patients may also benefit from this novel regimen, although a longer treatment duration likely necessary in this population.

Released: April 30, 2015

In the subset of study patients who have reached SVR4, extended treatment duration of 24 weeks appeared to provide greater efficacy vs 12 weeks in this difficult-to-treat population.

Released: April 26, 2015

The SVR12 rate in this PI-experienced population was 96% overall and 95% among patients with previous virologic failure; 3 patients relapsed with treatment-emergent NS3 and NS5A RAVs.

Released: April 24, 2015

In this phase II trial, 8-week therapy was promising, even in some cirrhotic groups, but SVR12 rates declined to below 90% when treatment duration was reduced further, dropping substantially with 4-week regimen.

Released: April 27, 2015

Efficacy also observed in genotype 4 HCV–infected patients receiving grazoprevir/elbasvir with or without ribavirin; evaluation of efficacy in genotypes 5 and 6 require additional patient numbers.

Released: April 25, 2015

SVR rates were consistently high in patients treated with a 16-week grazoprevir/elbasvir plus ribavirin regimen; no relapses observed in this arm.

Released: April 26, 2015

No HCV genotype/subtype or other patient parameter was associated with a decrease in treatment efficacy for this coinfected population.

Released: April 26, 2015
