A potent drug to fight hepatitis B

A potent drug to fight hepatitis B

Winner of the European Inventor Award 2012 in the category Research

Gilles Gosselin

Inventors: Dr. Gilles Gosselin and his team

Country: France

Invention: New drug for hepatitis B treatment

A hundred times more infectious than HIV, hepatitis B is a particularly recalcitrant disease that affects 350 million people chronically worldwide and has proven resistant to most treatments. But French scientists Gilles Gosselin, Jean-Louis Imbach and Martin L. Bryant have developed a highly effective anti-viral drug against hepatitis B which shows less cross-resistance with other medications and can thus be used as a first line of treatment.

The drug in question is telbivudine, originally called LdT, brand names sebivo or tyzeka.
While it is more powerful than lamuvidine, it has almost the same resistance profile and should not be used anymore since the approval of Entecavir and tenofovir.
