New Pharmaceuticals research report from GlobalData is now available from Fast Market Research

Logo

Boston, MA -- (SBWire) -- 08/20/2013 --Hepatitis C is a liver infection caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV) that results in acute or chronic presentation. The disease is often asymptomatic, but infected patients may experience fatigue, joint pain, itchy skin or jaundice. There is no effective vaccine against HCV, so the market is driven by therapeutics. Currently, drug combinations containing pegylated interferon (e.g., Roche's Pegasys and Merck's PegIntron) and ribavirin (e.g., Roche's Copegus and Merck's Rebetol) are used to treat HCV infection.

PegIntron is a conjugate of interferon alfa-2b, an antiviral drug, and polyethylene glycol (PEG). The compound enhances the innate antiviral immune response, and it also inhibits viral replication directly through an unknown mechanism. Schering-Plough launched the drug in the EU in 2000, where it is marketed as ViraferonPeg, and in the US in 2001. Merck obtained the rights to PegIntron as part of its merger with Schering-Plough in 2009.
