05:25 EDTGILDGilead announces 95% virologic suppression in HCV study
Gilead Sciences announced data from two Phase 2 studies and a compassionate access study in which a regimen containing once-daily Sovaldi 400 mg was administered for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus infection in patients with advanced liver disease. The first study, Study GS-US-334-0125, is an ongoing open-label Phase 2 clinical trial evaluating HCV patients with cirrhosis and portal hypertension, with or without decompensation, who were randomized 1:1 to an immediate treatment arm in which Sovaldi and ribavirin was administered for 48 weeks or to a deferred treatment arm in which this regimen was initiated after a 24-week observation period. Eighty percent of participants were treatment-experienced. Of the 22 patients who completed 24 weeks of therapy, 95% achieved virologic suppression on treatment. Additionally, patients taking Sovaldi-based therapy experienced trends in clinical and laboratory parameter improvements compared to patients in the observation arm. Sovaldi-based therapy was well tolerated in the study, and only one patient discontinued treatment due to an adverse event. The most common adverse events occurring in more than 25 percent of patients included nausea and pruritis.

05:37 EDTGILDGilead announces Phase 2 results for investigational sofosbuvir-based regimens
Gilead Sciences announced data from two Phase 2 studies evaluating investigational all-oral regimens containing the nucleotide analog polymerase inhibitor sofosbuvir, or SOF, for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus, or HCV, infection. The first study, ELECTRON2, is an ongoing, open-label Phase 2 clinical trial evaluating a once-daily fixed-dose combination of SOF 400 mg and the NS5A inhibitor ledipasvir, or LDV, 90 mg, with and without ribavirin, or RBV, twice-daily, among HCV-infected patient populations. In this study, 100% of treatment-na´ve genotype 3 patients receiving 12 weeks of LDV/SOF plus RBV and 64% of treatment-na´ve genotype 3 patients receiving 12 weeks of LDV/SOF without RBV achieved a sustained virologic response 12 weeks after completing therapy. Among genotype 1-infected patients who had failed prior treatment with SOF plus RBV, 100% achieved SVR12 following 12 weeks of LDV/SOF plus RBV. Additionally, 65% of genotype 1-infected patients with decompensated or Child-Turcotte-Pugh Class B cirrhosis receiving 12 weeks of LDV/SOF without RBV achieved SVR12. LDV/SOF with and without RBV was well-tolerated, including among patients with more advanced liver disease. A second study, Study GS-US-342-0102, is an ongoing randomized Phase 2 clinical trial in which treatment-na´ve, non-cirrhotic patients with genotypes 1-6 HCV infection received a 12-week course of SOF plus the pan-genotypic NS5A inhibitor GS-5816. Patients received SOF 400 mg and either GS-5816 25 mg or GS-5816 100 mg. In this study, 94.8% of patients receiving the 25 mg dose of GS-5816 and 96.1% of patients receiving the 100 mg dose achieved SVR12.

05:27 EDTMRKMerck announces data from C-WORTHy study
Merck announced additional data from the ongoing C-WORTHy study, a multi-arm Phase 2 clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of a once-daily, all-oral regimen combining MK-5172, an investigational hepatitis C virus, or HCV, NS3/4A protease inhibitor, and MK-8742, an investigational HCV NS5A replication complex inhibitor, among patients with chronic HCV Genotype 1 infection, or GT1. In an interim analysis of treatment-na´ve, non-cirrhotic patients administered a 12-week regimen of MK-5172/MK-8742, with and without ribavirin, or RBV, a sustained viral response, or SVR, was observed in 98% of patients administered MK-5172/MK-8742 alone and 94% in those administered MK-5172/MK-8742 plus RBV.
