Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp.
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01667081
First received: August 14, 2012
Last updated: May 7, 2014
Last verified: May 2014
  Purpose

This three-year multicenter study is being done to follow participants who received at least one dose of MK-5172 in a previous study to determine if they remain hepatitis C virus (HCV)-RNA negative over time, and to determine if they have developed antiviral resistance. The study will also evaluate long-term adverse events in this population.
