Abstract

The phase 2, open-label ACCORDION (ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT02349048) study investigated the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics of a 6- or 8-week regimen of simeprevir, daclatasvir and sofosbuvir in treatment-naïve patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype (GT) 1 infection and either early-stage fibrosis or compensated cirrhosis. Patients were assigned to treatment groups according to their fibrosis stage. Early-stage fibrosis: simeprevir 150 mg, daclatasvir 60 mg, sofosbuvir 400 mg once daily for 6 weeks; compensated cirrhosis: same regimen for 8 weeks. The primary endpoint was sustained virologic response 12 weeks after the end of treatment (SVR12). Safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of simeprevir, daclatasvir and sofosbuvir were investigated. Sixty-eight patients were treated (6-week group: n = 59; 8-week group: n = 9). SVR12 was achieved by 86.4% (51/59) of patients with early-stage fibrosis and by 100% (9/9) of patients with cirrhosis. The main reason for not achieving SVR12 in the 6-week group was viral relapse (11.9%; 7/59). One patient had on-treatment failure due to an early withdrawal (lost to follow-up due to incarceration). One patient with SVR12 in the 6-week group had a late viral relapse at post-treatment week 24. No clinically significant drug-drug interactions were observed. Adverse events were reported in 63.2% of patients (43/68) and were mainly grade 1/2. None of these led to treatment discontinuation. The 3 direct-acting antiviral regimens of simeprevir, daclatasvir and sofosbuvir were safe and well tolerated in treatment-naïve, HCV GT1-infected patients with early-stage fibrosis or compensated cirrhosis.
