1.Primary Outcome
Title Percentage of Participants Achieving Sustained Viral Response (SVR) at Follow-up Week 24 (FW24) Among Randomized Participants Who Received At Least One Dose of Trial Medication
Hide Description SVR24 is defined as undetectable plasma hepatitis C virus ribonucleic acid (HCV-RNA) at 24 weeks after the end of all study treatment. If there was no value in the FW24 visit window, the closest value available chronologically after this window was used; if a value was still missing after that, the value from Follow-up Week 12 (FW12) was used. HCV-RNA is detected by a nucleic acid amplification test and the lower limit of detection for this assay is 9.3 IU/mL.
