Gastroenterology Podcast March 2014: Telaprevir Twice Daily Is Noninferior to Telaprevir Every 8 Hours for Chronic Hepatitis C

A phase-3 study in the March issue of Gastroenterology examined the safety and efficacy of twice-daily telaprevir in treatment-naive patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 1 infection, including those with cirrhosis. Dr. Kuemmerle discusses the results with first author Dr. Maria Buti; Plus, a rundown of top stories from this month's issue of GI and Hepatology News.
