Phase 2a Study of Boceprevir for the Treatment of Genotype 6 Hepatitis C

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the antiviral efficacy of Boceprevir-based therapy for the treatment of genotype 6 chronic hepatitis C infection. Boceprevir has recently been approved for the treatment of genotype 1 chronic hepatitis C infection. Recent in vitro studies suggest similar efficacy against genotype 6 chronic hepatitis C infection. The investigators therefore hypothesise that: i) Boceprevir is a potent inhibitor of genotype 6 hepatitis C replication in vivo. ii) Boceprevir in combination with pegylated interferon-alpha and ribavirin for 24 weeks will cure a high proportion of patients chronically infected with genotype 6 chronic hepatitis C infection.

Primary Outcomes

Description: Determined by plasma HCV RNA quantification at frequent time points - baseline, day 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5

Measure: Early viral kinetics

Time: Day 5

Secondary Outcomes

Description: Percentage of patients with undetectable plasma HCV RNA) at different time-points

Measure: Rates of virological response

Time: Day 3, 5, week 2, week 4, week 12 and end of treatment (week 24 or week 48)

Description: Patients in Arm A and B randomised to received boceprevir-based triple therapy who achieve an undetectable HCV PCR at week 4 and week 20 are eligible for 24 weeks of therapy, vs. 48 weeks of therapy

Measure: Number of patients eligible for Response Guided Therapy

Time: Week 4 and week 20

Description: Defined by an increase in HCV RNA > 1 log10 IU/mL from nadir, or HCV RNA increase to > 100 IU/mL in patients who had previously reached an undetectable HCV RNA, and confirmed by 2 consecutive samples < 4 weeks apart.

Measure: Rates of virological breakthrough

Time: Week 4, week 20, week 24, week 48, week 60

Description: SVR 12 - Number of patients who achieve an undetectable HCV PCR 12-weeks post treatment Relapse - Number of patients who have an undetectable HCV PCR at the end of treatment but detectable HCV PCR 12-weeks post treatment

Measure: Rates of SVR12 and relapse

Time: Week 48 and Week 60

Measure: Rates of anaemia on treatment

Time: Day 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, then monthly up to week 48 of treatment

Purpose: Treatment

Allocation: Randomized

Parallel Assignment

There is one SNP


1 rs12979860

- IL28B C/C genotype (rs12979860) - Per local standard practice, documented results of one of the following: - A liver biopsy within 24 months prior to or during screening demonstrating the absence of cirrhosis, e.g., a METAVIR Score of 3 or less, Ishak score of 4 or less; or - A screening FibroTest score of ≤ 0.72 and Aspartate Aminotransferase to Platelet Ratio Index (APRI) ≤ 2; or - A screening FibroScan result of < 9.6 kPa.

- Subjects must have the following laboratory parameters at Screening: - ALT ≤ 10 × the upper limit of normal (ULN) - AST ≤ 10 × ULN - Hemoglobin ≥ 12 g/dL - White blood cell count ≥ 2,500 cells/μL - Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1,500 cells/mm3 - Platelets ≥ 90,000/mm3 - Prothrombin time ≤ 1.5 × ULN - Albumin > 3 g/dL - Direct (conjugated) bilirubin < ULN - Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) ≤ ULN - Creatinine clearance (CLcr) ≥ 50 mL/min, as calculated by the Cockcroft-Gault equation Exclusion Criteria: - Non-genotype 6 HCV infection, or evidence of mixed genotype HCV infection - IL28B C/T or T/T polymorphism (rs12979860) - Any current or past clinical evidence of cirrhosis such as ascites or esophageal varices, or prior biopsy showing cirrhosis, e.g., a Metavir Score of >3 or Ishak score of > 4. - Exceed defined thresholds for key laboratory parameters at Screening.

All patients will be of Asian background, will be non-cirrhotic, and will carry a "good response" IL28B genotype (C/C for rs12979860).
