Zepatier Beats Almost All Acute Hepatitis C in Just 8 Weeks
« on: August 24, 2018, 10:44:21 am »
Eight weeks of Merck’s Zepatier (grazoprevir/elbasvir) boasted a near-perfect hepatitis C virus (HCV) cure rate among a group of European men who have sex with men (MSM) in a recent study, the National AIDS Treatment Advocacy Project (NATAP) reports. These men had a very high reinfection rate, with 5 percent of them testing positive for a new hep C infection within 12 weeks of finishing Zepatier treatment.

Researchers conducted a single-arm open-label trial, known as the Dutch Acute HCV in HIV Study-2 (DAHHS-2), of eight weeks of Zepatier among 86 people from the Netherlands and Belgium who had acute, or recently contracted, hep C. They presented their findings at the International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam (AIDS 2018).
