Date:4/19/2012

BARCELONA, Spain, April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Further data shows PegIFN-λ's comparable efficacy but better safety profile than PegIFN-α

New data presented at the International Liver Congress™ 2012 shows consolidation of the interferon-free (IFN) revolution in HCV treatment. The much anticipated data from a number of clinical trials[1],[2],[3],[4],[5],[6] confirm that combinations of antivirals offer the hope of shorter, more effective treatment with fewer side effects.

The following new studies cover the treatment of HCV patients with genotypes (GT) 1, 2 or 3, who were administered ribavirin (RBV) - without IFN - and either one or two other drugs: direct-acting antivirals - HCV nucleotide analogues, HCV protease inhibitors, non-nucleoside RNA polymerase inhibitors - or host-targeting antivirals - cyclophilin A inhibitor.

PROTON & ELECTRON

  • Lawitz E, et al 'PSI-7977 PROTON and ELECTRON: 100% concordance of SVR4 with SVR24 in HCV GT1, GT2, & GT3' and the related abstract Gane EJ, et al 'ELECTRON: once daily PSI-7977 plus RBV in HCV GT1/2/3'.
  • In Lawitz E, et al, 100% of HCV GT2 or 3 patients (10) achieved SVR4 after treatment with PSI-7977 and RBV. In Gane EJ, et al, of nine HCV GT1 prior null-responders treated with PSI-7977 and RBV for 12 weeks, 7 had undetectable levels of HCV RNA by week 2.

SOUND-C2

  • Zeuzem S, et al 'SVR4 and SVR12 with an INTERFERON-FREE regimen of BI201335 and BI207127, +/- RIBAVIRIN, in treatment-naïve patients with chronic genotype-1 HCV infection: interim results of SOUND-C2'.
