After an accelerated review, the European Medicines Agency's Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use has endorsed Victrelis (boceprevir), Merck's new hepatitis C treatment, and recommended that the European Commission grant marketing approval. The committee said Victrelis should be used in combination with interferon-based treatment in untreated patients with chronic hepatitis C, as well as in patients who had failed on treatment. The action came just a week after the drug was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration.
