Study: Newport Beach, CA
A Randomized, Double-Blind, Controlled Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of the Combination of ABT-450/Ritonavir/ABT-267 and ABT-333 With and Without Ribavirin in Treatment Naïve Adults with Genotype 1a Chronic Hepatitis C Virus Infection
THIS IS A PEGINTERFERON-FREE TREATMENT, WITH OR WITHOUT RIBAVIRIN!
Chronic HCV infection without cirrhosis Treatment naïve Genotype 1a
We are currently screening patients in our office in Newport Beach, CA (see address below). Enrollment will likely close in May, 2013.

Study: San Francisco, CA
PEARL-IV (M14-002) trial, investigating a treatment without interferon (no injections)—Phase 3.
The study evaluates if ABT333 (Polymerase-Inhibitor), ABT450 (HCV-Protease Inhibitor) and ABT267 (NS5A Inhibitor) alone - or in conjunct with Ribavirin – is the better treatment option for GT1a (the most common GT in the US) Hepatitis C
In summary this is a
- 3 months treatment study
- Utilizing only tablets (no Interferon)
- Twice daily medications (total of 5 tabs)
The Phase 2 studies have had a SVR (“cure”) rate between 86 and 100% depending of the population looked at (i.e. pretreatment or naïve, cirrhosis or no cirrhosis, different subtypes)
People qualifying for this trial need to be:
- Are chronically infected with Hep C, GT1a
- Have no cirrhosis
- Have no history of failure on previous treatments.

MCM Clinical Research is currently seeking participants for the Janssen sponsored ATTAIN study which is a Phase III, double-blind trial to evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of TMC435 vs. telaprevir, both in combination with PegIFN and ribavirin, in chronic hepatitis C genotype-1 infected subjects who were null or partial responders to prior pegylated IFN and ribavirin therapy. All participants will receive active protease inhibitor therapy along with standard of care (Pegasys/Copegus).
