Once-daily grazoprevir/elbasvir is effective in patients infected with chronic hepatitis C
esults presented today at The International Liver Congress™ 2015 show that a 12-week oral regimen of once-daily single tablet grazoprevir/elbasvir (GZR/EBR) is effective and well-tolerated in treatment-naive (TN) patients infected with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotypes (GT)-1, -4 or -6, including those with compensated cirrhosis.  View News Article (2015-04-24)


Ledipasvir-sofosbuvir combination proves effective in subset of patients with chronic hepatitis C
A new study presented today at The International Liver Congress™ 2015 has demonstrated that ledipasvir (LDV) in combination with sofosbuvir (SOF) achieves sustained virologic response rates 12 weeks after treatment (SVR12; primary endpoint), of 93% and 95% in patients chronically infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotypes 4 or 5, respectively.  View News Article (2015-04-24)


Cancer rates among patients with hepatitis C are increased compared to those not infected
Results announced today at The International Liver CongressTM 2015 show that cancer rates in patients with the hepatitis C virus (HCV) were significantly increased compared to the non-HCV cohort.  View News Article (2015-04-24)


Novel therapeutic candidate targets key driver of HCC in genomically defined subset of patients
Findings were presented today at The International Liver CongressTM 2015 on a novel therapeutic candidate for a genomically defined subset of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients with an aberrant fibroblast growth factor receptor 4 (FGFR4) pathway. View News Article (2015-04-24)


NASH associated with a 50 percent higher chance of death compared with NAFLD
Results from a large population-based cohort of almost a million people in the UK found that the chances of dying from non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), over a 14-year period, was approximately 50% higher than for those with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). View News Article (2015-04-24)


Diabetes drug shows promise in the treatment of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis
A drug approved to treat type 2 diabetes could prove to be a powerful new treatment option for non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), according to research presented today at The International Liver CongressTM 2015. View News Article (2015-04-23)


Daclatasvir-sofosbuvir combination highly effective and well tolerated in patients with hepatitis C
Phase III results revealed today at The International Liver Congress™ 2015 show that once-daily treatment with daclatasvir (DCV) plus sofosbuvir (SOF) resulted in an overall 97% sustained virologic response (SVR) at 12 weeks post-treatment in patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) and HIV co-infection, including cirrhotic patients.  View News Article (2015-04-23)


Genomic analyses point to the potential of personalised care for liver cancer patients
A new study presented today at The International Liver Congress™ 2015 shows that by using genomic analyses to understand how and when carcinogenic mutations occur in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), it is possible to identify specific molecular profiles.  View News Article (2015-04-23)


Pooled analysis confirms vitamin E as a treatment for non-alcoholic steatohepatitis
Results revealed today at The International Liver Congress™ 2015 show that vitamin E (d-alpha-tocopherol) is an effective treatment for non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).  View News Article (2015-04-23)


New survey shows that half of people with hepatitis suffer from discrimination
