Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a leading cause of liver transplantation and there is an urgent need to develop therapies to reduce rates of HCV infection of transplanted livers. Approved therapeutics for HCV are poorly tolerated and are of limited efficacy in this patient population. Human monoclonal antibody HCV1 recognizes a highly-conserved linear(More)
Efficient replication of hepatitis C virus (HCV) replicons in cell culture is associated with specific sequences not generally observed in vivo. These cell culture adaptive mutations dramatically increase the frequency with which replication is established in vitro. However, replicons derived from HCV isolates that have been shown to replicate in(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Vaniprevir is a macrocyclic hepatitis C virus (HCV) non-structural (NS)3/4A protease inhibitor. The objective of these phase 3 multicenter, open-label trials was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of vaniprevir + peginterferon alfa-2b + ribavirin (PR) in Japanese patients with HCV genotype (GT)1 infection who had previously failed(More)
