ZEPATIER is indicated for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C genotypes 1 and 4 infection in adults1

12 weeks Zepatier achieved an overall cure rate of 95% for treatment-naive patients, n = 306

The C-EDGE Treatment Naïve study was an international, randomised, blinded, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trial of a fixed-dose combination of grazoprevir 100 mg/elbasvir 50 mg for treatment-naïve cirrhotic and non-cirrhotic patients with chronic HCV GT1, GT4, or GT6 infections. A historical SVR12 rate was used as the comparator for efficacy.
