Nearly Half of Surveyed Specialists Expect to Prescribe Gilead's Sofosbuvir/Ledipasvir Regimen Near-Term for Hepatitis C Infections

BURLINGTON, Mass., Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources Group finds that, for the treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections, 40 percent of surveyed HCV treating specialists expect to prescribe Gilead's investigational fixed-dose combination of sofosbuvir/ledipasvir in the next six months to their genotype 1 patients. Analysis of surveyed specialists' near-term prescribing intent indicates that nearly one in every four actively treated genotype 1 patients will be prescribed the sofosbuvir/ledipasvir regimen in the next six months. However, the on-treatment patient shares for the off-label Olysio (Janssen) and Sovaldi combination regimen are expected to remain stable over this period.
