Hepatitis C Cure Rate 93% With Elbasvir/Grazoprevir for Genotype 1 or 4
December 1, 2016
Sustained virologic response 12 weeks after elbasvir/grazoprevir (EBR/GZR, Zepatier) therapy ended (SVR12) reached 93% among HCV genotype 1 and 4 patients in the double-blind, placebo-controlled C-CORAL trial. SVR12 rates did not differ by sex, age or fibrosis stage.
HCV prevalence in the Asia/Pacific region and Russia ranges from 1% to 5%, with genotype 1b accounting for about half of infections. Fixed-dose one-tablet once-daily EBR/GZR is licensed for treatment of genotype 1 and 4 HCV in the United States, the European Union and elsewhere. C-CORAL collaborators conducted this trial to assess EBR/GZR efficacy and safety in Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand, Australia and Russia. EBV is an NS5A inhibitor, and GZR is an NS3/4A protease inhibitor.View Full Article
