·BMS-790052 is a first-in-class, highly selective HCV NS5A Replication Complex Inhibitor (RCI) with picomolar in vitro potency
·BMS-650032 is a highly active HCV NS3 protease inhibitor
·Both BMS-790052 and BMS-650032 have been shown to be generally well-tolerated and to produce robust declines in HCV RNA levels following multiple dosing in subjects chronically infected with HCV genotype 1
·The coadministration of BMS-790052 and BMS-650032 did not result in a clinically meaningful pharmacokinetic interaction in healthy volunteers
·HCV patients who are null responders to pegylated interferon and ribavirin (pegIFN/RBV) may benefit from combination therapy including 2
