FDA Grants Breakthrough Therapy Designation for Genotype 1 Hepatitis C Therapy

The daclatasvir-sofosbuvir regimen for the treatment of genotype 1 hepatitis C patients was granted amended Breakthrough Therapy Designation by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In the beginning of 2015, the FDA had planned to remove Breakthrough-Therapy Designation for the daclatasvir-sofosbuvir treatment since other therapies were available and had higher success for other genotypes. However, the FDA revised its first decision and decided to continue the development of this therapy for the genotype 1 hepatitis C patients addressed in ALLY-1 Trial due to its promising results.
