What is MyDacla? MyDacla is an antiviral medicine that is used in combination with other medicines to treat hepatitis C in adults. The drug contains the active substance Daclatasvir that blocks the activity of a hepatitis C virus protein called "NS5A", which is essential for virus multiplication. By blocking this protein, the drug stops hepatitis C virus multiplication. There are several genotypes of hepatitis C virus and it has been shown that Daclatasvir is effective against genotypes 1 to 4. How is MyDacla used ? Daclatasvir can only be obtained with a prescription and treatment should be initiated and monitored by a physician experienced in the treatment of patients with chronic hepatitis C. It is available as 30 mg and 60 mg tablets. The usual dose is 60 mg once a day. Daclatasvir should be used in combination with other chronic hepatitis C medications such as sofosbuvir, peginterferon alfa and ribavirin. The combination of medication to be used and the duration of treatment will depend on the hepatitis C virus genotype the patient is infected with and the type of liver disease he or she has, for example, if he has cirrhosis (liver sclerosis) or if the patient's liver is no longer functioning suitable. For more information, see the prospectus. How does MyDacla work? The active substance in MyDacla, daclatasvir, blocks the activity of a hepatitis C virus called "NS5A", which is essential for virus multiplication. Blocking this protein stops the hepatitis C virus multiplication. There are several genotypes of hepatitis C and Daclatasvir has been shown to be effective against genotypes 1 to 4. What benefit has Daclatasvir shown during the studies? In a major study involving 211 adults, Daclatasvir used in combination with sofosbuvir (with or without ribavirin) has been shown to be effective in eliminating hepatitis C virus from the blood. Patients in the study were infected with genotypes 1, 2 or 3 and all received treatment for 12 or 24 weeks. Most patients had not been previously treated for hepatitis C, Although some were infected with standard 1-drug resistant genotype (consisting of telaprevir or boceprevir - the so-called NS3 / 4A inhibitors - in combination with peginterferon alfa and ribavirin). Approximately 99% of patients with genotype 1 (125 out of 126), 96% of patients with genotype 2 (25 out of 26) and 89% of patients with genotype 3 (16 out of 18) Of the virus in the blood at 12 weeks after the end of the planned treatment. Additional studies involving patients with genotype 4 indicate that Daclatasvir is as effective against genotype 4 as against genotype 1. What are the associated risks?
