Boehringer Ingelheim to Announce Pivotal Phase III Hepatitis C Data for Faldaprevir* at AASLD Congress 2013
INGELHEIM, Germany - Tuesday, October 1st 2013 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE) For media outside of the U.S.A., UK and Canada only

Ten abstracts featuring Boehringer Ingelheim’s investigational hepatitis C virus (HCV) protease inhibitor, faldaprevir*and polymerase inhibitor, deleobuvir* will be presented at the 64th Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) 2013, 1-5 November, Washington.1

Faldaprevir* is a second generation protease inhibitor and is the foundation of Boehringer Ingelheim’s interferon-based and interferon-free treatment regimens.

The accepted abstracts include final results from the Phase III STARTVerso™1 and 2 studies, investigating the treatment regimen of faldaprevir* in combination with pegylated interferon and ribavirin. Also data in difficult-to-treat populations such as treatment-experienced (STARTVerso™3 – final data) and HCV/HIV co-infected (STARTVerso™4 – end of treatment data) patients will be presented at the meeting, adding to the comprehensive portfolio of data for faldaprevir in HCV. The STARTVerso™ trial results form the basis for regulatory submissions of faldaprevir.

Boehringer Ingelheim’s comprehensive hepatitis C clinical trial programme includes a broad range of the type of patients that clinicians see every day in clinical practice. The company’s goal is to develop effective and well tolerated treatments recognising the unmet need for more patient centric approaches in hepatitis C.

Boehringer Ingelheim’s abstracts can be accessed on the AASLD website today at www.aasld.org. Details of the poster presentations can be found below.
