SAN DIEGO — Harvoni, with or without ribavirin, yielded a 97% sustained virologic response rate in a real-world cohort of patients with genotype 1 hepatitis C virus and HIV, according to findings presented at Digestive Disease Week 2016.
Kris V. Kowdley, MD, of the Liver Care Network, Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, and colleagues, aimed to understand real-world outcomes across a heterogeneous population. The analysis included 140 patients who initiated therapy between October 2014 and March 2015. Patients were treated with Harvoni (ledipasvir/sofosbuvir, Gilead Sciences) for 8 (5%), 12 (75%) or 24 (20%) weeks.
