07:11 EDTACHNAchillion achieves 100% SVR4 in Phase 2 trial of ACH-3102 and sofosbuvir
Achillion Pharmaceuticals announced interim results from an ongoing Phase 2 proxy study evaluating ACH-3102, Achillion's second-generation NS5A inhibitor, in combination with sofosbuvir, without ribavirin, for eight weeks of treatment in patients with treatment-na´ve genotype 1 chronic hepatitis C virus infection. Of the 12 patients treated, 100 percent remained HCV RNA undetectable four weeks after completing therapy. Based upon these results, 12 additional patients will begin treatment with six weeks of once daily ACH-3102 and sofosbuvir. "ACH-3102 continues to demonstrate good safety and tolerability through three Phase 2 studies. We believe these studies also confirm a differentiated efficacy profile for an NS5A inhibitor. Achieving 100% SVR4 with eight weeks of treatment with sofosbuvir serving as a nucleotide proxy indicate that dosing 50 mg once daily of ACH-3102 plus a nucleotide inhibitor has the potential to achieve commercially competitive results for curing HCV in a short duration, ribavirin-free doublet," commented David Apelian, EVP and Chief Medical Officer at Achillion. Milind Deshpande, President and CEO of Achillion commented, "As we continue to achieve clinical milestones, we remain focused on execution of the broader clinical development strategy for our HCV portfolio. We expect that Phase 1 proof-of-concept results with ACH-3422 will be reported during the fall of this year, which we anticipate will lead to the start of a Phase 2 combination program to evaluate our proprietary doublet regimen for an eight week, or potentially shorter, treatment regimen for HCV that will begin before the end of 2014."
