Curing Hep C With Daklinza + Sovaldi
« on: August 06, 2015, 04:34:57 pm »
A look at real-world use of Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Daklinza (daclatasvir) and Gilead Sciences’ Sovaldi (sofosbuvir) showed that, among those coinfected with HIV, the combination treats hepatitis C virus (HCV) just as well as in clinical trials.

12 weeks, without ribavirin worked just as well as patients who had longer treatment times or used the older hep C drug. Now that’s promising!
