Arrival of IFN-Free Therapies Will Bring Patients For Whom Current Therapies are Ineffective Back to the Drug-Treated Population, According to Findings from Decision Resources Group
BURLINGTON, Mass., June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources Group finds that China's market for hepatitis C virus (HCV) drugs will be driven by an increase in its drug-treated population, following the introduction of novel HCV therapies. Nearly a third of patients diagnosed with HCV do not receive the current standard of treatment-the combination of pegylated-interferon-alpha (peg-IFN-alpha) and ribavirin-because they have not responded to this regimen in the past. The arrival of IFN-free regimens will bring patients who have not responded to currently available drugs back into treatment, thereby significantly increasing the drug-treated population.
