Since 2014, the United States and Europe has approved all oral, interferon free- regimens that combine with direct-acting antiviral agents. Hence, the sustained virological response rate of patients with chronic HCV genotype 1 infection has improved over 90%, and the treatment modalities has introduced a new era. These drugs, ombitasvir and dasabuvir, received customary authorization of Food and Drug Administration in 2015 and are the first combined direct-acting antiviral agents for treating HCV genotype 1 infection. It has superior application prospects in China because of its high-sustained virological response rate and safety profile. This article reviews the pharmacokinetics, drug interactions, efficacy and safety of this therapeutic regimen.
