2013-08-06 09:43:35 - New Pharmaceuticals market report from GlobalData: "Victrelis (Hepatitis C Virus) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022"

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.

Victrelis is an anti-HCV drug marketed by Merck. Victrelis inhibits the HCV NS3/4A protease by reversibly binding to enzyme's active site. The HCV protease is required for viral polyprotein processing, which makes the enzyme essential for HCV replication

(Asselah and Marcellin, 2013). The HCV protease is, therefore, an attractive drug target. Victrelis was a first-in-class DAA when it was approved in the US and EU in 2011 for the treatment of HCV GT1 infection.
