12:31 EDT 28 Jul 2017 | Yahoo News

(Reuters) - AbbVie Inc said on Friday it had received European approval to market its drug for treatment of all six major forms of hepatitis C. The company said the approval of Maviret was supported by eight studies evaluating more than 2,300 patients in 27 countries. The drug is also under priority review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the company expects regulatory decisions in the coming weeks. The FDA last year approved a combination drug, a 12-week regimen by Gilead Sciences Inc for the treatment for all six major forms of hepatitis C for patients who've already tried one drug.
