Jan 09th 2013 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on quickview entitled "Best-in-class PI". In summary, the report says:
Pivotal Phase III trials have now demonstrated Medivir’s simeprevir to be the best-in-class once daily protease inhibitor (PI) for hepatitis C (HCV). The data should ensure a rapid take up for simeprivir post approval, although partner J&J will –unusually – find itself also marketing its main competitor, Incivek (telaprevir) in the EU. Nevertheless, these data should ensure that Medivir’s drug remains in the race for the real prize, a place in the emerging all oral HCV treatment landscape.
