Naturally Occurring Resistance Associated Substitutions in Non-Cirrhotic, Treatment Naive HCV-HIV Co-Infected Patients Does Not Affect the Treatment Response for Anti-HCV Antiviral Therapy

Ekta Gupta et al. showed that BL-RAS were common in HCV-HIV co-infected patients. [Read the Full Post]

In vitro antiviral activity of the anti-HCV drugs daclatasvir and sofosbuvir against SARS-CoV-2, the aetiological agent of COVID-19

3 views | Apr 22 2021

Carolina Q Sacramento et al. found that daclatasvir, alone or in combination with sofosbuvir, at higher doses than used against HCV, might be further fostered as an anti-COVID-19 therapy. [Read the Full Post]

Tumor Necrosis Factor Inhibits Spread of Hepatitis C Virus Among Liver Cells, Independent From Interferons

502 views | Oct 10 2018

Laidlaw SM et al. found TNF to have antiviral effects independently of, as well as in combination with, IFNs. TNF inhibits HCV infection despite increased HCV envelope glycoprotein-mediated infection of liver cells. These findings contradict those from other studies, which have reported that TNF blocks signal transduction in response to IFNs. The destructive inflammatory effects of TNF must be considered along with its antiviral effects. [Read the Full Post]

PTC725, an NS4B-Targeting Compound, Inhibits a Hepatitis C Virus Genotype 3 Replicon, as Predicted by Genome Sequence Analysis and Determined Experimentally

0 views | Oct 09 2018

Graci JD et al. identified previously unreported amino acid substitutions selected by PTC725 treatment which further demonstrate that these compounds target the NS4B first transmembrane region. [Read the Full Post]

Hepatitis C Virus NS4B Can Suppress STING Accumulation To Evade Innate Immune Responses

775 views | Aug 13 2018

Yi G et al. showed that 2a/JFH1 NS4B has an additional mechanism to evade STING signaling through suppressing STING accumulation. [Read the Full Post]

A profiling study of a newly developed HCVcc strain PR63cc's sensitivity to direct-acting antivirals

824 views | Aug 12 2018

Tao W et al. showed that PR63cc was more resistant than JFH1 to the asunaprevir/daclatasvir combination treatment. In summary, our study systemically analyzed the DAA sensitivity of a new HCVcc strain and identified critical RAVs. These results are not only important for monitoring the emergence of drug-resistant mutations of current DAA therapies, but also valuable for developing next-generation DAAs. [Read the Full Post]

Understanding the molecular mechanism of host-based statin resistance in hepatitis C virus replicon containing cells

1905 views | Jan 28 2017

Delang L et al. demonstrated that statin resistance in HCV replicon containing hepatoma cells is conferred by changes in the cellular environment. [Read the Full Post]

BMS 790052 is the most potent hepatitis C virus inhibitor

4058 views | Nov 13 2013

BMS-790052 is a highly selective inhibitor of HCV NS5A with EC50 of 9-50 pM, for a broad range of HCV replicon genotypes and the JFH-1 genotype 2a infectious virus in cell culture. Phase 3. [Read the Full Post]

Telaprevir is an associate of a class of antiviral drugs

4187 views | Mar 21 2013

Telaprevir is an associate of a class of antiviral drugs called protease inhibitors. Especially, telaprevir prevents the hepatitis C viral enzyme NS3.4A serine protease. Telaprevir is just indicated for use against hepatitis d genotype 1 viral infections and hasnt been which can have an impact on or being protected when employed for other genotypes of the herpes virus. The standard therapy of ribavirin and pegylated interferon is less successful on genotype 1 and a welcome addition is offered by telaprevir to the treatment of this genotype. [Read the Full Post]
