FDA Advisory Committee Recommends Approval of Simeprevir for Combination Treatment of Genotype 1 Chronic Hepatitis C in Adult Patients
Date:10/24/2013

from the QUEST-1 and QUEST-2 studies earlier this year at the 48th Annual Meeting of the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and presented data from PROMISE at Digestive Disease Week 2013 (DDW) in Orlando, Florida. Data from ASPIRE were presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) in 2012.

About Hepatitis C
Hepatitis C, a blood-borne infectious disease of the liver and a leading cause of chronic liver disease, is the focus of a rapidly evolving treatment landscape. Approximately 150 million people are infected with hepatitis C worldwide – including approximately 3.2 million people in the United States – and 350,000 people per year die from the disease globally. When left untreated, hepatitis C can cause significant damage to the liver including cirrhosis. Additionally, hepatitis C may increase the risk of developing complications from cirrhosis, which may include liver failure.

About Simeprevir
Simeprevir (TMC435) is an investigational NS3/4A protease inhibitor jointly developed by Janssen R&D Ireland and its affiliated companies and Medivir AB for the treatment of genotype 1 and genotype 4 chronic hepatitis C in adult patients with compensated liver disease, including cirrhosis. Simeprevir works by blocking the protease enzyme that enables the hepatitis C virus to replicate in host cells.

Janssen is responsible for the global clinical development of simeprevir and has acquired exclusive, worldwide marketing rights, except in the Nordic countries. Medivir AB will retain marketing rights for simeprevir in Nordic countries under the marketing authorization held by Janssen-Cilag International NV. Simeprevir was approved on September 27, 2013 in Japan for the treatment of genotype 1 hepatitis C and a Marketin
