Thanks for the link.

9 of 9 cleared the virus in the first study with GS-7977 and Ribavirin yet only 53% people had a similar response in the 2nd study. (???)

Another interesting aspect I never picked up in the past is just how many companies are competing to come up with new generation HCV treatments: A whopping seven: Gilead, Abbott, Bristol-Myers, Squibb, J&J, Merck and Vertex.

The likely reason for the difference was in the first study (ELECTRON) 44% of of patients had the IL28B CC polymorphism.

The second study (QUANTUM) only had 16 percent of the patients with CC.

Yes, there are many non-interferon drugs in trials. But Gilead GS-7977 is the furthest along in trials. Which is why it is expected to be the first to market.

Cheers!

From these results and the results they posted in march on the 12 week trial, I am trying to see what all the excitement is about here.
