Medivir AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: MVIR) today informs that new clinical data for simeprevir, an NS3 / 4A protease inhibitor for the treatment of hepatitis C virus infection, will be presented by our partner Janssen Sciences Ireland UC (Janssen) in conjunction with The International Liver Congress ™ 2016 of the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) in Barcelona, on 13-17 April. A total of nine presentations will be made, including one "late breaker" presentation. The presentations will cover the efficacy, safety and tolerability of simeprevir used as a component of various combination therapies in a number of different adult patient populations, and will be based on data from phase II and phase III studies and from on-going clinical use (so-called "real-world data").
