In this study, 58 patients were randomized to receive ACH-1625 at a once daily dose of 200 mg, 400 mg, or 800 mg in combination with pegylated interferon and ribavirin (P/R) for twelve weeks.

All (22/22, or 100%) patients had undetectable levels of HCV RNA at the end of the 24 weeks of treatment, the company said.

EOT was defined in the EASL poster presentation as any patient who returned for an EOT visit, which also included those patients who withdrew from the study prior to week 12. The additional EOT data is defined as patients who achieved extended rapid virological response (eRVR) and received a total of 24 weeks of therapy consisting of 12 week of ACH-1625 plus P/R followed by 12 weeks of P/R alone.
