"6%, 22%, and 20% of T12PR patients had undetectable HCV RNA at Week 1, Week 2, and Week 4, respectively, compared to 2%, 3%, and 3% of patients in PR, respectively (Figure 2A)."
 
"70%, 63% and 73% of T12PR patients achieved RVR, eRVR, and SVR compared to 9%, 8%, and 44% of PR patients, respectively (Figure 2B)." (from Jules: In ADVANCE 75% with 12 weeks telaprevir achieved SVR & 69% who took 8 weeks telaprevir)
 
"Patients treated with a telaprevir-based regimen, who had early HCV RNA undetectability, had higher sustained viral response rates 90% of patients, with undetectable HCV RNA at Week 1, achieved a sustained viral response rate compared to 83% and 77% in Week 2 and Week 4 first undetectable HCV RNA patients."
 
"A majority of patients treated with a telaprevir-based regimen received 24 weeks of total treatment while all patients treated with peginterferon alfa-2a/ribavirin alone received 48 weeks of total treatment"
 
"Overall 7% (66/903) of T12PR patients experienced virologic failure versus 32% (115/361) of PR patients."
 
"Overall 8% (64/903) of T12PR patients experienced relapse versus 28% (64/361) of PR patients (Table 2)."
 
"Most common adverse events reported in T12PR patients 10% difference from PR patients were pruritus, nausea, anemia, and rash (in bold, Table 3)."
 
"During the telaprevir treatment phase, 7% and 4% of T12PR and PR patients discontinued all study drugs including 1% and 1% of T12PR and 0% and 1% of PR patients due to rash and anemia events, respectively."
 
"During the overall treatment phase, 14% and 7% of T12PR and PR patients discontinued all study drugs including 2% and 2% of T12PR and 0% and 1% of PR patients due to rash and anemia events, respectively."
