New HCV Drugs at EASL
 
 
  From Jules: Roche, Abbott and GNS-227 appear to have 2nd generation protease inhibitors. There were several new NS5As and nucleotides presented besides the Pharmasset impressive data on their 2 nucleotides which are the furthest along in development including by Abbott & Intermune. TMC435 & BI201335 are in phase 3. The DEBO25 cyclophilin inhibitor looked good in large phase 2 study and is also in phase 3. Several companies repo
