Interferon-Free Regimens at EASL
  from Jules: There are about 8 interferon-free regimens below and/or presented at EASL, again bear in mind this is a work in process, this is the first step in designing the best interferon-free terapies, but the SVR rates are very good here, although admittedly in small studies this shows and proves what we are capable of seeing here, with better & more potent regimens coming in the future. All the companies & researchers are working towards 2-4 drug all oral regimens for naives with SVR rates approaching & achieving for some 100%. For null-responders we will likely need improved regimens, at this meeting Abbott reported 94% SVR rates with 12 weeks therapy with a 3-drug all oral regimen of their protease+NNRTI+RBV & 47% in null responders, but this was not their best regimen, 24 weeks needs more exploration, and if we need 3 potent orals or even 4 potent orals not including RBV this will be studied and if perhaps some interferon for these patients are needed we will see that studied as well, as the hardest to treat are the cirrhotic, non-CC null responders. We have potent protease inhibitors, potent NS5A inhibitors, potent nucleotides and useful potent NNRTIs so there is a lot to work with.
