Schering Plough says it won European recommendation on combination therapy

Drugmaker Schering-Plough Corp. said Monday that the European Medicines Agency recommended approval of a combination therapy for adults with chronic hepatitis C who are also infected with clinically stable HIV.
Approximately 40 percent of the estimated 2.5 million people living with HIV in Europe are also infected with the hepatitis C virus, according to the World Health Organization, the company said in a statement.
Schering-Plough said the recommendation serves as the basis for a European Commission approval of the expanded use of the combination therapy, which is currently approved in the European Union for treating chronic hepatitis C in previously untreated adult patients.
