Description

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together the academic, regulatory and pharmaceutical (diagnostic and therapeutic) communities to discuss therapeutic endpoints, trial designs, appropriate patient populations and safety concerns with regards to novel therapeutic approaches aimed to achieve HBV cure. This meeting will bring all the stakeholders together to discuss definitions of HBV cure, likelihood of HBV cure with currently approved therapies, preclinical and clinical data on novel antiviral and immune modulatory therapies, appropriate designs and endpoints for trials to evaluate therapies aimed at HBV and HDV cure, and strategies to efficiently and safely evaluate combination therapies. These discussions will provide guidance regarding potential pathways leading to regulatory approval of therapies that will result in high rates of HBV cure in individuals with chronic hepatitis B and chronic hepatitis D.
