The Majority of Physicians that Treat Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Have Begun "Warehousing" and Preparing Their HCV Patients for the Next Generation of HCV Treatments
Date:5/23/2013

EXTON, Pa., May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BioTrends Research Group, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for specialized biopharmaceutical issues, finds that, unaided, one in five surveyed gastroenterologists, hepatologists, and infectious disease specialists reported that in the past six months, they have begun warehousing patients (e.g., intentionally delaying treatment) in anticipation of the next generation of HCV treatments—notably more physicians than six months ago, when only 6 percent reported that they had begun warehousing patients.

Furthermore, only one in five physicians agrees that they are satisfied with currently available treatment options, underscoring the high unmet need for alternatives to treat chronic HCV infections. The trending analyses of physician-reported anticipated prescribing in TreatmentTrends®: Hepatitis C Virus (US), Wave 1 also finds that, for the first time in a year, surveyed physicians are expecting to treat a greater proportion of their genotype 1 (3 percent) and 2/3 (3 percent) patients in the next six months with regimens that are not currently available. Unaided responses from most physicians who expect to be using other treatments suggest they are expecting products in development, potentially interferon-free regimens, to be available for use in the next six months.

In aided physician responses, Gilead's sofosbuvir and Janssen/Medivir's simeprevir garnered the highest degree of familiarity for use in HCV treatment, followed closely by Bristol-Myers Squibb's daclatasvir and asunaprevir. Additionally, 20 percent of the surveyed physicians believe that Gilead's sofosbuvir is the most promising pr
