Indication:

 It is used for the treatment of hepatitis Cvirus (HCV) infection. Compared to previous treatments, Sofosbuvir-based regimens provide a higher cure rate, fewer side effects, and a two- to four-fold reduced duration of therapy. Sovihep(Sofosbuvir) allows most patients to be treated successfully without the use of peginterferon, an injectable drug with severe side effects. that is a key component of older drug combinations for the treatment of HCV. Sovihep(Sofosbuvir) is used for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C, genotypes 1, 2, 3, and 4, in combination with pegylated interferon and ribavirin, or with ribavirin alone. It is also used in combination with the viral NS5a inhibitor ledipasvir in an interferon-free combination for the treatment of genotype 1 hepatitis C infection. Sovihep(Sofosbuvir) is also used in HCV patients with an HIV coinfection. The treatment is based on a number of clinical trials, for example the ELECTRON trial which showed that a dual interferon-free regimen of Sofosbuvir(Sovihep) plus ribavirin produced a 24-week post-treatment sustained virological response (SVR24) rate of 100% for previously untreated patients with HCV genotypes 2 or 3.
