HANGZHOU, China and SHAOXING, China, Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Ascletis announced today

it has received the acceptance letter from the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) for Ravidasvir (RDV, ASC16) new drug application (NDA). Ravidasvir in combination with GanovoŪ (RDV/DNV Regimen) is the first all-oral interferon-free HCV regimen
developed by a domestic company in China. Phase II/III clinical trial has shown that RDV/DNV Regimen demonstrated a cure rate of 99% (SVR12) with a short treatment duration of 12 weeks in genotype 1 patients. In patients with baseline NS5A resistance mutations, RDV/DNV Regimen demonstrated a cure rate of 100% (SVR12).

"Ascletis was successfully listed this morning on Hong Kong Exchange as the first ever pre-revenue biotech. The NDA for our all-oral HCV regimen was accepted by CFDA in the afternoon." Jinzi J. Wu, Ph.D., Ascletis' founder, President and CEO, commented, "Two significant accomplishments on the same day reflect our unremitting effort to provide affordable and effective HCV cures to the patients and to fulfill our commitment to the investors."

Ganovo Regimen, Ascletis' first breakthrough HCV regimen, was approved on June 8 and launched on June 27, 19 days after the approval. The acceptance of the NDA for its all-oral HCV regimen enables Ascletis soon to provide two HCV treatment options for Chinese patients, strengthening its leading position in China's HCV field.
