Expect miracles: New drugs for hepatitis C
Posted in the Hepatitis Forum
#1 Aug 21, 2013
Five major pharmaceutical companies are developing oral, interferon-free HCV treatment regimens based upon still-investigational direct-acting antiviral agents (DAAs) that target HCV proteins and their functions. The clinical trials experience to date indicates these DAA-based regimens have substantially higher cure rates, far better tolerability and safety, and a much lower pill burden. Also, they are vastly simpler to administer than are current standard therapies. And all this is being achieved with a 12-week treatment duration instead of the 24 weeks required with standard therapy in 2013, Dr. Everson said at a conference on internal medicine sponsored by the University of Colorado.
