Paritaprevir (administered with low-dose ritonavir), ombitasvir, and dasabuvir are direct-acting antiviral agents administered as combination regimens for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus infection. Drug–drug interactions between 2D (ombitasvir/paritaprevir/ritonavir) or 3D (ombitasvir/paritaprevir/ritonavir and dasabuvir) regimens and omeprazole, a CYP2C19 substrate and acid-reducing agent, were evaluated in 24 healthy volunteers. Subjects received omeprazole (40 mg once daily) on day 1 and days 20–24 and the 2D or 3D regimen (ombitasvir/paritaprevir/ritonavir 25/150/100 mg once daily ± dasabuvir 250 mg twice daily) on days 6–24. Compared with omeprazole alone, coadministration with the 2D or 3D regimen decreased omeprazole geometric mean Cmax and AUCt values by 40% to 50%. Ombitasvir, dasabuvir, and ritonavir mean exposures showed <10% change, and paritaprevir mean exposures showed <20% change when the 2D or 3D regimen was administered with omeprazole compared with administration without omeprazole. Although no a priori dose adjustment is needed, a higher omeprazole dose should be considered if clinically indicated when coadministered with the 2D or 3D regimen. No dose adjustment is required for the 2D or 3D regimen when administered with omeprazole, other acid-reducing agents, or CYP2C19 inhibitors.
