Gilead’s Hepcludex (bulevirtide) Receives NICE Recommendation for the Treatment of Chronic Hepatitis Delta Virus Infection
- NICE has recommended the use of Hepcludex as a treatment option for chronic HDV inf. on NHS use for adults with compensated liver disease in England
- Additionally, the company collaborates with Northern Ireland's health authorities to soon make bulevirtide available. The Scottish Medicines Consortium accepted bulevirtide in 2023
- In May 2023, the EMA’s CHMP adopted a positive opinion for Hepcludex recommending marketing authorization to treat adults with chronic HDV and compensated liver disease. The CHMP recommendation was based on the P-III study (MYR301) demonstrating the efficacy and safety of bulevirtide, resulting in the removal of the specific obligations after 48wks. of treatment
