Data Supporting Boceprevir Response Guided Therapy Presented at American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) Annual Meeting
Date:11/1/2009

l of PEGINTRON, full-dose REBETOL and boceprevir for 48 weeks.

The HCV SPRINT-1 study was conducted at sites across the United States, Canada and Europe. Overall, 77 percent of the 595 patients in the study were enrolled in the United States. African-Americans represented 16 percent of the patients enrolled and 7 percent of the patients in the study were cirrhotic.

Rationale for Lead-In Regimen

The use of the peginterferon and ribavirin lead-in prior to the addition of boceprevir was shown in the HCV SPRINT-1 study to reduce the incidence of viral breakthrough regardless of treatment duration. The rationale for the lead-in treatment regimen is based on the fact that both PEGINTRON and REBETOL reach steady-state concentrations by week 4, therefore patients have the protease inhibitor added at a time when the backbone drug levels have been optimized and the patient's immune system will have been activated and primed by PEGINTRON. With the lead-in strategy, initial peginterferon and ribavirin responsiveness is determined prior to the addition of a protease inhibitor, thus allowing the physician to take into account the potential for the development of resistance.
