ACH-3102 is an investigational new drug in development for the treatment of the viral infection known as hepatitis C. It is an NS5A inhibitor. The NS5A protein serves multiple functions at various stages of the viral life cycle, including viral replication. NS5A also plays a role in the development of interferon-resistance, a common cause of treatment failure.[1][2][3]
