Brief Summary:
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of treatment with sofosbuvir/velpatasvir/voxilaprevir (SOF/VEL/VOX) fixed-dose combination (FDC) for 8 weeks and of treatment with sofosbuvir/velpatasvir (SOF/VEL) FDC for 12 weeks in participants naive to direct-acting antivirals (DAA) with chronic genotype 3 hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and cirrhosis.

Official Title: A Phase 3, Global, Multicenter, Randomized, Open-Label Study to Investigate the Safety and Efficacy of Sofosbuvir/Velpatasvir/GS-9857 Fixed-Dose Combination for 8 Weeks and Sofosbuvir/Velpatasvir for 12 Weeks in Subjects With Chronic Genotype 3 HCV Infection and Cirrhosis
Actual Study Start Date : December 23, 2015
Actual Primary Completion Date : October 12, 2016
Actual Study Completion Date : January 2, 2017

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: SOF/VEL/VOX
SOF/VEL/VOX tablet for 8 weeks
400/100/100 mg FDC tablet administered orally once daily with food
Other Names:
  • GS-7977/GS-5816/GS-9857
  • Vosevi®

Experimental: SOF/VEL
SOF/VEL tablet for 12 weeks
400/100 mg FDC tablet administered orally once daily without regard to food
Other Names:
  • GS-7977/GS-5816
  • Epclusa®

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

  2. Percentage of Participants Who Permanently Discontinue Study Drug Due to an Adverse Event [ Time Frame: Up to 12 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants With SVR at 4 and 24 Weeks After Discontinuation of Therapy (SVR4 and SVR24) [ Time Frame: Posttreatment Weeks 4 and 24 ]
    SVR4 and SVR24 were defined as HCV RNA < LLOQ at 4 and 24 weeks after stopping study treatment, respectively.

  2. Percentage of Participants With HCV RNA < LLOQ On Treatment [ Time Frame: Weeks 1, 2, 4, 8 and 12 ]
  3. Change From Baseline in HCV RNA [ Time Frame: Weeks 1, 2, 4, 8 and 12 ]
  4. Percentage of Participants With Virologic Failure [ Time Frame: Up to Posttreatment Week 24 ]

    Virologic failure was defined as:

    • On-treatment virologic failure:

      • Breakthrough (confirmed HCV RNA ≥ LLOQ after having previously had HCV RNA < LLOQ while on treatment), or
      • Rebound (confirmed > 1 log10 IU/mL increase in HCV RNA from nadir while on treatment), or
      • Non-response (HCV RNA persistently ≥ LLOQ through 8 weeks of treatment), or
    • Virologic relapse:

      • Confirmed HCV RNA ≥ LLOQ during the posttreatment period having achieved HCV RNA < LLOQ at last on-treatment visit
