Video - Naim Alkhouri, MD, discusses interferon-free regimens for HCV
Permalink  
 


ORLANDO, Fla. -  Naim Alkhouri, MD, of the Digestive Disease Institute at the Cleveland Clinic, provides his perspective on interferon-free therapies for hepatitis C at Digestive Disease Week 2013.

Alkhouri cites encouraging data from trials of sofosbuvir and ribavirin in patients with HCV genotypes 2 and 3, in which high SVR rates were observed after 12 to 16 weeks of treatment. He suggests that interferon-free treatments may become available in the near future, including compounds for use in patients with HCV genotype 1.
