06:08 EDTACHNAchillion announces clinical results for ACH-3102
Achillion announced updated Phase 2 clinical trial results evaluating a 150 mg loading dose followed by 50 mg once daily of ACH-3102 in combination with either once daily 200 mg or 400 mg of sovaprevir and twice daily ribavirin showed that 100% of patients achieved SVR12 including subjects who had Y93 mutations at baseline. A second oral presentation on ACH-3102 was made at APASL 2014 that discussed clinical virology and the lack of virologic breakthrough that was observed in the novel Phase 2 clinical trial evaluating ACH-3102 with ribavirin for patients with treatment-na´ve genotype 1b HCV. Despite the presence of up to six linked mutations identified at baseline in the NS5A protein, ACH-3102, without the co-administration of interferon or a second direct-acting antiviral, was able to suppress viral replication with no virologic breakthrough observed during 12 weeks of treatment.

Shares of Achillion (ACHN) are higher after the company announced this morning that four abstracts have been accepted for presentation at The Liver Meeting, the annual meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases.
