Published: Nov 04, 2013
WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gilead Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq:GILD) today announced results from a Phase 3 study, PHOTON-1, evaluating the investigational once-daily nucleotide analogue sofosbuvir for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection among patients co-infected with HIV. In the trial, 76 percent (n=87/114) of genotype 1 HCV treatment-naïve patients receiving 24 weeks of an all-oral, interferon-free regimen of sofosbuvir plus ribavirin (RBV) achieved a sustained virologic response 12 weeks after completing therapy (SVR12). Patients who achieve SVR12 are considered cured of HCV infection. These data will be presented this week during the 64th Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (The Liver Meeting 2013) in Washington, D.C.
