Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Sofosbuvir+RBV 12 weeks
Participants will receive sofosbuvir+RBV for 12 weeks.
Drug: Sofosbuvir
Sofosbuvir 400 mg tablet administered orally once daily
Other Names:
  • GS-7977
  • PSI-7977
  • Sovaldi®

Drug: RBV
Ribavirin (RBV) tablets were administered orally in a divided daily dose according to package insert weight-based dosing according to the approved Copegus labeling in Japan (< 60 kg = 600 mg , > 60 kg to ≤ 80 kg = 800 mg, and ≥ 80 kg = 1000 mg)
Other Name: Copegus®




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants With Sustained Virologic Response (SVR) at 12 Weeks After Discontinuation of Therapy (SVR12) [ Time Frame: Posttreatment Week 12 ]
    SVR12 was defined as HCV RNA < the lower limit of quantitation (LLOQ; ie, 25 IU/mL) at 12 weeks after stopping study treatment.

  2. Incidence of Adverse Events Leading to Permanent Discontinuation of Study Drug(s) [ Time Frame: Up to 12 weeks ]
    The percentage of participants permanently discontinuing any study drug due to an adverse event was summarized.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants With Sustained Virologic Response at 4 and 24 Weeks After Discontinuation of Therapy (SVR4 and SVR24) [ Time Frame: Posttreatment Weeks 4 and 24 ]
    SVR4 and SVR 24 were defined as HCV RNA < LLOQ at 4 and 24 weeks following the last dose of study drug, respectively.

  2. Percentage of Participants Experiencing Viral Breakthrough [ Time Frame: Up to 12 weeks ]
    Viral breakthrough was defined as HCV RNA ≥ LLOQ after having previously had HCV RNA < LLOQ while on treatment, confirmed with 2 consecutive values (second confirmation value may have been posttreatment) or with a last available on-treatment measurement and no subsequent follow-up values.

  3. Percentage of Participants Experiencing Viral Relapse [ Time Frame: Up to Posttreatment Week 24 ]
    Viral relapse was defined as having achieved undetectable HCV RNA levels (HCV RNA < LLOQ) at end of treatment, but did not achieve an SVR.
