An experimental combination of direct acting antivirals (DAAs) from AbbVie is effective and safe in patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 1 who did not respond to previous DAA therapy, according to research presented at the European Association for the Study of the Liver's International Liver Congress (EASL 2016) last month in Barcelona. Between 86% and 100% of patients achieved sustained virological response and the combination worked well in the context of pre-existing resistance mutations.
