With the advent of direct acting antiviral agents for the Hepatitis C virus (HCV), there has been a concerted effort to offer broad testing services and capabilities to assist clients at every stage of drug development. From lead compound optimization and resistance profiling to Phase IV marketing studies, LabCorp and its specialty testing laboratories offer specialized, proprietary testing. In fact, LabCorp offers global central laboratory testing services to support HCV trials around the world.

In this webinar, a thorough overview of currently available HCV capabilities will be presented, including:

  •     Technical overview of HCV assay services, including resistance testing (mutation detection and replicon-based DAA susceptibility assays), viral load assays, genotype/subtype characterization and IL28B allele testing
  •     Appropriate timing and circumstances for each specific test
  •     How these assays can be used to support regulatory filings
  •     How LabCorp’s global reach can help clients conduct more cost-effective clinical trials

The presentation will also highlight ongoing and future HCV assay development activities, such as the implementation of next generation sequencing platforms and the expanded presence in China, Southeast Asia and Europe.
