A 12-week oral regimen of daclatasvir, asunaprevir, and beclabuvir, with or without ribavirin, cured 86% to 90% of genotype 1 hepatitis C patients with cirrhosis in the Phase 3 UNITY-2 trial, while the TRIO regimen without ribavirin demonstrated similar sustained response rates for non-cirrhotics in UNITY-1, according to 2 late-breaking reports presented at the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) Liver Meeting this week in Boston. Findings suggest that ribavirin is still useful for some harder-to-treat patients.
