We are happy to announce a new feature of our Website – the HCV Advocate HCV Medications Blog. In the Blog, I have summarized information about all of the direct-acting antiviral medications that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat chronic hepatitis C.
The summaries are taken from the FDA Prescribing Information. I have listed the genotype, treatment, and duration of treatment. I have matched this information to the cure rates listed in the FDA Prescribing Information. The side effects, common drug interactions, patient assistance programs, and additional information is also summarized. There are also tabs for that define commonly used terms (Terms) in the Blog and patient assistance programs (PAP) that may help with the co-payments or coverage of the drugs.
You can find a link to this new blog under our Top menu under the Treatments then Current Treatments button.
Keep checking back for more features as we build more tools into the HCV Medications Blog.
Alan and the staff of the HCV Advocate
