Discourage Using PPIs With New Hep C Med Epclusa

Please see the October 2016 FDA advisory about the risk of Hepatitis B reactivation in some patients being treated for Hepatitis C.

Epclusa (ep-KLOO-suh, sofosbuvir/velpatasvir) will further simplify hepatitis C treatment.

So far, other recent hep C meds (Harvoni, etc) can only be used for certain hep C genotypes...and duration can vary.

But Epclusa is a one-tab, once-daily med that can be used for ANY hep C genotype...and patients use just a 12-week course.
