g of simeprevir and reporting a Metavir score of F3 (PILLAR), or F3 and F4 (ASPIRE). The Metavir score is used to quantify the degree of inflammation and fibrosis of the liver and patients are scored on a four-point scale. An F3 score means the patient has numerous septa (fibrous tissue bands that can decrease the flow of blood through the liver) without cirrhosis, while an F4 score means the patient has cirrhosis.

About Simeprevir   
Simeprevir (TMC435) is a NS3/4A protease inhibitor jointly developed by Janssen and Medivir AB to treat chronic hepatitis C (HCV). Simeprevir is being studied in combination with pegylated interferon and ribavirin, and in combination with direct-acting antiviral agents in all-oral interferon-free regimens, with and without ribavirin.

Global Phase 3 studies of simeprevir include QUEST-1 and QUEST-2 in treatment-naive patients, PROMISE in patients who have relapsed after prior interferon-based treatment and ATTAIN in null-responder patients.  In parallel to these trials, Phase 3 studies for simeprevir are ongoing in both treatment-naive and treatment-experienced HIV-HCV co-infected patients, HCV genotype 4 patients and in Japanese HCV genotype 1 patients.

Simeprevir is also being studied in Phase 2 interferon-free trials with and without ribavirin in combination with:

  • Janssen's TMC647055 and ritonavir in treatment-naive, relapser or null-responder HCV genotype 1 patients;
  • Gilead Sciences, Inc.'s sofosbuvir (GS-7977) in null-responder HCV genotype 1 patients; and
  • Bristol-Myers Squibb's daclatasvir (BMS-790052) in treatment-naive or previous null-responder HCV genotype 1 patients.

In addition, Janssen recently announced that it has entered into a non-exclusive collaboration with Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated to evaluate in a Phase 2 study the safety and efficacy of an all-oral regimen of simeprevir and Vertex's
