An Analysis of Response Rates by Fibrosis Stage in Patients Treated With Faldaprevir, BI 207127, and Ribavirin in the SOUND-C2 Study
  Reported by Jules Levin
Digestive Disease Week (DDW), May 18-21, 2013, Orlando, FL
Boehringer announced just before EASL a deal with Presidio to conduct a phase 2a collaborative trial to evaluate Presidio's pan-genotypic HCV NS5A inhibitor (PPI-668) in combination with Boehringer Ingelheim's HCV protease inhibitor faldaprevir (BI201335) and its non-nucleoside HCV polymerase inhibitor (BI207127), with or without ribavirin. At EASL Phase 3 Results were reported for Faldaprevir+Peg/Rbv, soon BI will submit a New Drug Application to the FDA for approval. At CROI BI reported coinfection early virologic response study results & ART PK data showing favorable results, which is expected to be submitted to the FDA for a coinfection indication.
