Regulatory UpdateIn September 2010, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) placed two of our HCV drug candidates, IDX184 and IDX320, on clinical hold following a 14-day drug-drug interaction study of a combination of IDX184 and IDX320 in healthy volunteers. Idenix is working with the FDA to determine the next steps in the development of these drug candidates.
