Through the study, it was found out that Sofosbuvir is safe and well tolerated. None of the patients opted out of the study due to adverse effects.
Gilead Sciences is evaluating sofosbuvir in HCV patients in other phase III studies, which include Positron, Fission and Neutrino. Based on the data from the studies, Gilead intends to get regulatory approvals for the candidate in the US and EU in the second quarter of 2013.
Successful development of sofosbuvir will boost the company’s top line and strengthen its position in the lucrative HCV market. Out of the huge population suffering from HCV infection, very few patients get proper treatment. Thus, the field is open to new and better treatments for the HCV patients.
