Hepatitis C virus (HCV) treatments have dramatically progressed from poorly tolerated, moderately successful interferon-based therapies to highly effective all-oral interferon-free regimens. While sustained virologic responses have significantly improved with fixed-dose combinations (FDC) of these direct-acting antivirals (DAA), cost remains high and certain populations of patients remain difficult to treat. Glecaprevir (GLE, an NS3/4A protease inhibitor) and pibrentasvir (PIB, NS5A inhibitor) were recently approved as a FDC therapy for HCV, and have expanded reach, reduced cost, and in certain populations, reduced HCV treatment duration. GLE/PIB is effective across all genotypes, and has been shown to be effective in HIV-infected patients, patients with chronic kidney disease, and Child–Pugh A-compensated cirrhosis. GLE/PIB is also effective for a shortened duration of 8 weeks in treatment-naive non-cirrhotic patients.
