Clinical Study Results
A simple treatment regimen for Hep C
HARVONI treatment is just one pill, once a day for the majority of patients—no interferon, no complicated regimens.
Your Hep C Specialist will determine your treatment regimen and length based on your individual case. Most patient types are recommended to receive 12 weeks of treatment, although 8 or 24 weeks may also be prescribed.
In all cases, treatment depends on the specifics of your particular situation. However, your Hep C Specialist will likely consider:
- Whether or not you have been treated before (treatment history)
- The level of virus in your body (viral load)
- The presence and extent of liver damage
- Whether or not you have had a liver transplant
Cure rates by patient type Based on clinical studies
Cure means the Hep C virus is not detected in the blood when measured three months after treatment is completed.
Hep C & HIV-1
For patients with both Hep C and HIV-1, the recommended HARVONI treatment regimen and length is the same as that for someone without HIV-1. Please refer to the charts on tabs 1 and 2 for treatment information for your specific genotype.
It is important to talk with your healthcare provider about your HIV antiretroviral medicine(s) to understand potential interactions with HARVONI.
Advanced Cirrhosis or Liver Transplant
For patients with advanced cirrhosis (decompensated)* and Hep C genotype 1, HARVONI plus ribavirin provides an all-oral treatment option with just 12 weeks of therapy.
For patients who have had a liver transplant, don’t have advanced cirrhosis, and have Hep C genotype 1 or 4, HARVONI plus ribavirin provides an all-oral treatment option with just 12 weeks of therapy.
It’s important to talk to your Hep C Specialist about your individual situation to find out if this treatment regimen is right for you.
If you take HARVONI with ribavirin, you should also read the ribavirin Medication Guide for important pregnancy-related information.
*Advanced cirrhosis (decompensated) is when the liver is extensively scarred and can no longer do its job effectively.
