Leading the way in Hep C treatment

HARVONI is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with chronic (lasting a long time) hepatitis C (Hep C) genotype (GT) 1, 4, 5 or 6 infection with or without cirrhosis (compensated). In those with GT 1 and advanced cirrhosis (decompensated) or with GT 1 or 4 with or without cirrhosis (compensated) who have had a liver transplant, HARVONI is used with ribavirin.

HARVONI transformed Hep C treatment as the first cure with a simple regimen that’s one pill, once a day for the majority of patients. There’s no interferon, no complex regimens.

Now, HARVONI has been prescribed to over a quarter of a million people to cure their Hep C.*

In clinical studies, HARVONI was proven to cure 96–99% of adult patients who had Hep C genotype 1 and no prior treatment with 12 weeks of therapy. Certain patients were cured with just 8 weeks of therapy. Your Hep C Specialist will determine your length of treatment.

If you don’t have Hep C genotype 1, 4, 5, or 6, learn about another treatment option that may be right for you.

Cure means the Hep C virus is not detected in the blood when measured three months after treatment is completed.

*This information is derived from IMS NPA, IMS NSP™, and IntegriChain® data; data reflect estimated patient starts for HARVONI from 10/2014–9/2016.

In a study of 865 patients with genotype 1 Hep C and no prior Hep C treatment, with or without cirrhosis (compensated), 99% (210 out of 213) of those who received HARVONI once daily for 12 weeks were cured. In a separate study of 647 patients with GT1 Hep C, with no prior Hep C treatment and without cirrhosis, 96% (208 out of 216) of those who received HARVONI once daily for 12 weeks were cured.

In a study of 647 patients with genotype 1 Hep C, with no prior Hep C treatment and without cirrhosis, 97% (119 out of 123) of those with lower levels of the virus (less than 6 million IU/mL) who received HARVONI once daily for 8 weeks were cured.

These studies did not include patients with advanced cirrhosis (decompensated) or those who have had a liver transplant. Advanced cirrhosis (decompensated) is when the liver is extensively scarred and can no longer do its job effectively.

Have you been treated for Hep C before? See clinical study data for Hep C genotype 1 patients with prior Hep C treatment.

Important Safety Information

What is the most important information I should know about HARVONI?

HARVONI can cause serious side effects, including:

  • Hepatitis B virus reactivation: Before starting HARVONI treatment, your healthcare provider will do blood tests to check for hepatitis B infection. If you have ever had hepatitis B, the hepatitis B virus could become active again during and after treatment with HARVONI. This may cause serious liver problems, including liver failure and death. If you are at risk, your healthcare provider will monitor you during and after taking HARVONI.

Important Safety Information

What should I tell my healthcare provider before taking HARVONI?

  • Tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you have ever had hepatitis B infection, liver problems other than hepatitis C infection, or a liver transplant; if you have severe kidney problems or are on dialysis; if you have HIV; or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or plan to become pregnant or breastfeed. It is not known if HARVONI will harm your unborn baby or pass into your breast milk. If you take HARVONI with ribavirin, you should also read the ribavirin Medication Guide for important pregnancy-related information.

HARVONI is powered by sofosbuvir

Sofosbuvir is the backbone of HARVONI and was a clear step forward in Hep C treatment.

HARVONI further revolutionized Hep C treatment by combining sofosbuvir and ledipasvir into one pill. It works by targeting certain proteins in the Hep C virus to keep it from reproducing in the body.

Knowing your Hep C genotype is important

Just as there are different blood types, there are also different types of Hep C, called genotypes. The most common type in the U.S. is genotype 1.

Approximately 75% of people in the U.S. with Hep C have genotype 1

Often people don’t know the genotype of Hep C that they have. But knowing your type of Hep C is important because it helps your Hep C Specialist choose the right treatment for you. It can also affect the length of your treatment. To learn more about genotypes, reach out to your Hep C Specialist.

Important Safety Information

What should I tell my healthcare provider before taking HARVONI? (continued)

  • Tell your healthcare provider and pharmacist about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. HARVONI and certain other medicines may affect each other, or may cause side effects.

What are the possible side effects of HARVONI?

Serious side effects may also include:

  • Slow heart rate (bradycardia): HARVONI, when taken with amiodarone (Cordarone®, Nexterone®, Pacerone®), a medicine used to treat certain heart problems, may cause slow heart rate, which in some cases has led to death or the need for a pacemaker. Get medical help right away if you take amiodarone with HARVONI and get any of the following symptoms: fainting or near-fainting, dizziness or lightheadedness, not feeling well, weakness, extreme tiredness, shortness of breath, chest pains, confusion, or memory problems.
