High hepatitis C cure rate seen in trial of 6-week oral drug regimens

13 enero 2015

Thirty-eight of 40 volunteers with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections who received a combination of three direct-acting oral drugs for six weeks were cured in a recent clinical trial. A six-week course of therapy is half the length of time previously shown to achieve a similar cure rate using two direct-acting oral HCV drugs only.
