Victrelis (Boceprevir) label changes

On February 27, 2013, FDA approved changes to the Victrelis (boceprevir) label to include results from a clinical trial entitled, "Boceprevir and Peginterferon/Ribavirin for the Treatment of Chronic Hepatitis C in Treatment-Naļve Subjects: A Comparison of Erythropoietin Use Versus Ribavirin Dose Reduction for the Management of Anemia." In addition the Microbiology-Resistance section was updated with new information about the impact of specific amino acid substitutions on HCV replicon susceptibility to boceprevir.

Full details...
