ABSTRACT
The authors discuss the discovery of Chronic hepatitis-C (HC) pharmacogenetics and its use in future drug development in the U.S. They offer a background on the milestones in HC virus drug development. They also explore some studies on the relevance of the pharmacogenomic evolution in CHC, including the potential of the host IL28B gene as predictor of sustained virologic response after treatment with peginterferon alfa and ribavirin.
