ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which examines the peginterferon-free, ribavirin-free regimen of declatasvir, asunaprevir, and BMS-791325. The 32 genotype 1 hepatitis C virus (HCV) infected patients were given asunaprevir, declatasvir, and BMS-791325 for 24 weeks in group one and 12 weeks in group two. According to the interim data of the 2012 American Association for the Study of Lung Diseases (AASLD) meeting, the 12-week therapy with the three direct-acting antiviral agents was well tolerated.
