OBJECTIVES Drug-resistant minority viral variants can pre-exist in the viral quasispecies of chronically infected hepatitis C virus (HCV) patients and can emerge gradually upon drug treatment. When heterogeneous clinical samples are tested for drug susceptibility in a chimeric replicon-based phenotyping assay, biphasic dose-response curves may be observed.(More)
Background.  The pre-existence of minority hepatitis C virus (HCV) variants and their impact on treatment outcome, as well as the persistence of emerging resistant variants posttreatment in patients failing treatment with simeprevir/peginterferon/ribavirin (SMV/PR), were assessed by deep sequencing (DS). Methods.  Population sequencing (PS) and Illumina DS(More)
