Achillion nominates ACH-2928 NS5A clinical candidate for treatment of HCV Achillion Pharmaceuticals.

The candidate, ACH-2928, is an NS5A inhibitor that in preclinical research has demonstrated excellent potency against HCV RNA replication, in addition to good safety and pharmacokinetic profiles. ‘The entire profile of ACH-2928 demonstrates that it is highly active and retains potency against HCV genotypes 1a and 1b, along with across additional genotypes.
