07:01 EDTBMYBristol-Myers says Daklinza approved by Japan's MHLW
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company announced that the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has approved Daklinza, a potent, pan-genotypic NS5A replication complex inhibitor, and Sunvepra, a NS3/4A protease inhibitor, providing a new treatment that can lead to cure for many patients in Japan who currently have no treatment options. The Daklinza+Sunvepra Dual Regimen is Japanís first all-oral, interferon- and ribavirin-free treatment regimen for patients with genotype 1 chronic hepatitis C virus infection, including those with compensated cirrhosis. The indications for Daklinza and Sunvepra in Japan are for the improvement of viraemia in either of the following patients with chronic hepatitis C genotype 1, or chronic hepatitis C genotype 1 with compensated cirrhosis: (1) patients who are ineligible or intolerant to interferon-based therapy, and (2) patients who have failed to respond to interferon-based therapy. The approval is supported by results from a Phase III study demonstrating that the 24-week regimen of Daklinza and Sunvepra achieved overall SVR24 among 84.7% of Japanese HCV patients with genotype 1b. Among patients 65 years of age or older who were either interferon-ineligible or intolerant, 91.9% achieved SVR24. Further, patients with compensated cirrhosis present at baseline had overall SVR24 rates of 90.9%.
