First-generation protease inhibiters include telaprevir (Incivek[R]) and boceprevir (Victrelis[R]).
Telaprevir, Boceprevir, Simeprevir, Faldaprevir, and Asunaprevir drugs improved the SVR rate against different HCV genotypes but could not eliminate the use of interferon completely [12-15].
Telaprevir and boceprevir were incorporated in July 2012 for the treatment of infection for genotype 1 which is the most common form predominantly in the country (25).
They found that annual treatment rates more than doubled from 2,726 to 6,679 patients when pegylated interferon was introduced, declined for a while and then rose modestly to 4,900 patients when boceprevir and telaprevir were introduced, declined again to an all-time low of 2,609 and then rebounded to 9,180 patients when sofosbuvir and simeprevir were introduced, and finally skyrocketed to 31,028 patients when ledipasvir/ sofosbuvir and paritaprevir/ritonavir/ombitasvir/dasabuvir were introduced.
Similarly in Phase III clinical trials using protease inhibitors boceprevir and telaprevir gender had no impact on SVR rate23.
12) The manufacturers of 2 agents, telaprevir and boceprevir, removed them from the market because of decreased demand related to their unfavorable side-effect profile and the availability of better tolerated agents.
In addition, four approved hepatitis C antivirals--simeprevir, telaprevir, boceprevir, and sofosbuvir--may cause photosensitivity, Dr.
Since the first generation protease inhibitors boceprevir & telaprevir were approved in combination therapy with peginterferon & ribavirin, we live in a time of outstanding revolution in hepatitis C virus infection.
At the time data were collected for the present study, the standard treatment protocol for HCV included interferon (once weekly self-administered intramuscular injection), ribavirin (daily oral self-administered medication), and depending on pretreatment medical assessment results, an additional protease inhibitor drug (either boceprevir or telaprevir) (Jacobson et al.
Drug therapies (lamivudine, entecavir, adefovir, tenofovir, telaprevir, boceprevir, Viread, Myozyme, darbepoetin, symeprewir).
The recommended treatment, until recently, for chronic hepatitis C is pegylated interferon and ribavirin given for a period of 6 to 12 months depending on genotype and other criteria; boceprevir, telaprevir, sofosbuvir being expensive additions to therapy in some cases.
Para los pacientes infectados con los G2, G3 y G4 consiste en la combinacion de IFN-PEG mas RBV, mientras que desde el 2011 a los pacientes infectados con el G1 se les incluye los inhibidores de la proteasa viral NS3/4A, telaprevir y boceprevir (Fig.
