Computer Modeling Reveals How Surprisingly Potent the Hepatitis C Drug Works
February 19, 2013
A study by researchers from Los Alamos National Laboratory and a multinational team reveals how daclatasvir, a direct-acting antiviral agent in development for the treatment of the hepatitis C virus (HCV), targets one of its proteins and causes the fastest viral decline ever seen with anti-HCV drugs--within 12 hours of treatment.
