New Achillion Drug + Sovaldi = Cure in 6 Weeks
« on: February 12, 2015, 01:00:16 pm »
Six weeks of Achillion’s ACH-3102 and Gilead Sciences’ Sovaldi (sofosbuvir) cured 100 percent of a small trial of people with genotype 1 of hepatitis C virus.

I'm wondering if the next phase will include a larger number of people?
I am not very familiar with the trial processes.

"Six weeks of Achillion’s ACH-3102 and Gilead Sciences’ Sovaldi (sofosbuvir) cured 100 percent of a small trial of people with genotype 1 of hepatitis C virus (HCV). The Phase II study of NS5A inhibitor ACH-3102 and the analog polymerase inhibitor Sovaldi included 12 people with genotype 1: seven with genotype 1a and five with genotype 1b."

Thank you,
MG
