  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to evaluate if a 12-week total regimen of telaprevir in combination with peginterferon and ribavirin (T12/PR12) is safe and effective in subjects who have the interleukin-28B (IL28B) CC genotype. The subjects enrolled in this study will have chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and will not have cirrhosis of the liver.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of subjects assigned to the 12-week regimen of telaprevir, Peg-IFN, and RBV (T12/PR12) who have sustained viral response (SVR) 12 weeks after last planned dose of study drug (SVR12) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks after last planned dose of study drug ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of subjects who have SVR 24 weeks after last planned dose of study drug (SVR24) [ Time Frame: 24 weeks after last planned dose of study drug ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of subjects who have SVR at Week 72 [ Time Frame: 72 weeks after last planned dose of study drug ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of subjects who have relapse overall and by treatment completion status [ Time Frame: Every 12 weeks from last planned dose through Week 72 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of subjects who have on-treatment virologic failure [ Time Frame: Week 1 through Week 48 of planned treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety as indicated by adverse events (AEs), clinical laboratory results, electrocardiograms (ECG), and vital signs [ Time Frame: Start of treatment period through 4 weeks after last administered dose of last study drug ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Amino acid sequence of the HCV NS3•4A protease domain [ Time Frame: Duration of treatment period; 12 and 24 weeks after last planned dose, and at Week 72 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: T12/PR12

Experimental: Other

All other subjects (subjects with no RVR, subjects with no RVR assessment, and subjects with RVR who permanently discontinue telaprevir, pegylated interferon or ribavirin treatment before Week 12) will have a planned total pegylated interferon/ribavirin treatment duration that depends on response-guided treatment criteria:

  • Subjects who have undetectable HCV RNA at Weeks 4 and 12 (eRVR) will have a planned total pegylated interferon and ribavirin treatment duration of 24 weeks (T12/PR24 regimen).
  • Subjects who do not have eRVR (or are missing eRVR assessment) will have a planned total pegylated interferon and ribavirin treatment duration of 48 weeks (T12/PR48 regimen).

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male and female subjects, 18 to 70 years of age, inclusive
  • Treatment-naive OR subjects (prior relapsers) may be included who did not achieve SVR24 after at least 1 prior course of Peg-IFN/RBV therapy of standard duration and had a documented undetectable HCV RNA level at the planned end of treatment of at least 42-week duration
  • Subjects have IL28B CC genotype determined during screening
  • Subjects have genotype 1 chronic hepatitis C and laboratory evidence of HCV infection for at least 6 months, defined by (1) documented HCV serology test at least 6 months before the first screening visit demonstrating the presence of anti-HCV antibody, or (2) documented presence of HCV RNA by a sensitive and specific assay at least 6 months before the first screening visit, or (3) documented histologic evidence of chronic hepatitis C demonstrated by fibrosis on a standardized histologic grading system at least 6 months before the first screening visit. If only inflammation is present in the liver histologic report, then 6 months of laboratory evidence is required.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects have received previous treatment with telaprevir or any other protease inhibitor(s) for chronic hepatitis C.
  • Subjects who did not achieve SVR24 after at least 1 prior course of Peg-IFN/RBV therapy of standard duration and never achieved undetectable HCV RNA while on treatment
  • Subjects have evidence of hepatic decompensation
  • Subjects have evidence of cirrhosis
  • Subjects have diagnosed or suspected hepatocellular carcinoma
  • Subjects have any other cause of significant liver disease in addition to hepatitis C, which may include but is not limited to malignancy with hepatic involvement, hepatitis B, drug or alcohol-related cirrhosis, autoimmune hepatitis, hemochromatosis, Wilson's disease, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, or primary biliary cirrhosis. Steatosis is allowed if clinically asymptomatic
