An FDA panel endorsed the approval of Janssen R&D Ireland and Medivir's simeprevir, in combination with peginterferon alfa and ribavirin, as a treatment for chronic hepatitis C in patients with compensated liver disease. The drug was particularly recommended for previously untreated patients or those who were unresponsive to previous interferon treatment with or without ribavirin. If approved, the drug would be the third HCV protease inhibitor available in the U.S.
