Tibotec Advances Global Clinical Research Program for TMC435 in HCV; Will Present Four Abstracts Evaluating Safety and Efficacy at EASL
Date:3/29/2011

CORK, Ireland, March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Tibotec Pharmaceuticals announced today that four abstracts reporting research findings with TMC435, the company's investigational hepatitis C protease inhibitor, have been accepted for presentation at the 46th Annual Meeting of the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) in Berlin, Germany, March 30 to April 3, 2011.  

The four abstracts for TMC435 support Tibotec's continued efforts to advance its research and development program for the treatment of HCV.  TMC435 highlights at the meeting include one oral presentation and one late-breaker poster presentation:

  • Analysis of the predictive nature of IL28B genotype and pretreatment serum IP-10 in treatment-naive HCV patients from phase IIb PILLAR study on TMC435 administered with pegIFN/ribavirin
  • Results from interim 24 week data of the international phase IIb randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled ASPIRE study on efficacy, tolerability, safety, and pharmacokinetics of TMC435 administered with pegIFN/ribavirin in treatment-experienced HCV patients

  • "Tibotec is committed to developing innovative new treatment options that may offer better treatment outcomes and that may decrease the duration of treatment for patients with chronic hepatitis C infection," said Brian Woodfall M.D., Vice President of Global Clinical Development at Tibotec. "The company's presence at this year's EASL meeting and the recent launch of the phase 3 clinical trial program for TMC435 reinforce the value of this investigational agent in our growing HCV pipeline."

    The titles of the abstracts and times for Tibotec's presentations on TMC435 appear below – full abstracts can also be accessed at www.easl.eu.
