Direct-acting antivirals now ready for prime time
Date:4/24/2013

uly are in a prime time for HCV therapy; these effective new treatment options have the potential to pave the way for future interferon-sparing regimens and we look forward to using them in the clinic" added Prof Thursz.

Other promising Phase II data presented at the congress may provide further options:

ELECTRON

  • Results of the ELECTRON study show that all-oral regimens containing sofosbuvir in combination with a second DAA and ribavirin show promising efficacy, with rapid and consistent antiviral suppression in both treatment-nave patients and prior null responders. High response rates in those treatment arms employing a second agent supports the hypothesis that the addition of another DAA with a different mechanism of action and non-overlapping resistance profile would improve rates of SVR.

IFN and RBV Free Regimen

  • Interim analysis of a Phase II study show that an interferon (IFN)- and ribavirin (RBV)-free regimen of daclatasvir (NS5A inhibitor), asunaprevir (protease inhibitor) and BMS-791325 (non-nucleoside NS5B inhibitor) achieved, overall, an SVR4 of 92% (46/50), SVR12 of 94% (30/32), and SVR24 of 94% (15/16) in treatment-naive genotype (GT) 1 patients, mainly GT1a and IL28B non-CC. Patients were initially randomised (1:1) to daclatasvir 60mg QD, asunaprevir 200mg BID, and BMS-791325 75mg BID for a period of 24 or 12 weeks. Following one month of safety observation, a second cohort was randomized (1:1) to the same regimen but including BMS-791325 150mg BID (24 or 12 weeks). The primary end point was HCV RNA < 25 IU/mL at 12 weeks post-treatment (SVR12). Sixty four of the 66 patients had a HCV RNA < 25 IU/mL by week 4, with no difference in virological responses between 12 and 24 weeks of treatment.
