Six weeks of Mavyret (glecaprevir/pibrentasvir) cured almost all of those recently infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV), including those with HIV coinfection.

Publishing their findings in the journal Hepatology, researchers conducted an open-label, single-arm, multicenter, international pilot study among people who had contracted hep C within 12 months.

The study included 30 men with a median age of 43. Ninety percent were men who have sex with men. (Sex between men can transmit hep C.) Eighty-three percent had genotype 1 of hep C, 10% had genotype 4 and 7% had genotype 3. Seventy-seven percent had HIV/HCV coinfection, 47% had ever injected drugs and 13% had previously cleared hep C but had been reinfected.
