BI calls it quits in hep. C

Boeheringer Ingelheim is officially out of the hepatitis C space. The Connecticut drugmaker announced Friday that it was killing its faldaprevir interferon-based regimen because “there is no longer an unmet medical need” for this treatment.

The company hinted at such a move in April when it said Phase III results of its faldaprevir-deleobuvir combination “did not live up to expectations,” and that these results were prompting the firm to examine “its activities in the field of hepatitis C therapy in depth.”
