Official Title: An Open-Label Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of ABT-493/ABT-530 in Treatment-Naïve and Treatment-Experienced Asian Adults With Chronic Hepatitis C Virus Genotype (GT) 1 to GT6 Infection With Compensated Cirrhosis and With or Without Human Immunodeficiency Virus Co-Infection

Primary Outcome Measures

  • Percentage of Participants With Sustained Virologic Response 12 Weeks Post-treatment (SVR12) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks after the last actual dose of study drug, Week 24 or Week 28 depending on the treatment regimen. ]
    SVR12 was defined as plasma hepatitis C virus ribonucleic acid (HCV RNA) level less than the lower limit of quantification (LLOQ; 15 IU/mL) 12 weeks after the last dose of study drug.
Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With On-treatment Virologic Failure [ Time Frame: 12 or 16 weeks depending on the treatment regimen ]
    On-treatment virologic failure was defined as meeting one of the following: confirmed increase from nadir in HCV RNA (two consecutive HCV RNA measurements > 1 log₁₀ IU/mL above nadir) at any time point during the treatment period; or confirmed HCV RNA greater than or equal to 100 IU/mL after HCV RNA < 15 IU/mL during the treatment period, or HCV RNA ≥ 15 IU/mL at end of treatment with at least 6 weeks of treatment.
  • Percentage of Participants With Post-treatment Relapse [ Time Frame: From the end of treatment (Week 12 or 16) through 12 weeks after the last dose of study drug (Weeks 24 or 28 depending on the treatment regimen). ]
    Post-treatment relapse was defined as confirmed HCV RNA greater than or equal to 15 IU/mL between the end of treatment and 12 weeks after the last dose of study drug among participants who completed treatment with HCV RNA levels < 15 IU/mL at the end of treatment, excluding re-infection.
  • Percentage of HCV/HIV Co-infected Participants Achieving SVR12 [ Time Frame: 12 weeks after the last actual dose of study drug, Week 24 or Week 28 depending on the treatment regimen ]
    SVR12 was defined as plasma HCV RNA level less than LLOQ (15 IU/mL) 12 weeks after the last dose of study drug.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Must be of Asian descent.
  • Screening laboratory result indicating hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype (GT) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 infection.
  • Positive anti-HCV antibody (Ab) and HCV ribonucleic acid (RNA) greater than or equal to 1000 IU/ mL at Screening Visit.
  • Chronic HCV infection defined as one of the following:
    • Positive for anti-HCV Ab or HCV RNA at least 6 months before Screening; or
    • A liver biopsy consistent with chronic HCV infection;
  • HCV treatment-naïve to any approved or investigational HCV treatment or treatment-experienced with interferon (IFN) (alpha, beta or pegylated interferon [pegIFN] with or without ribavirin (RBV) OR sofosbuvir with RBV with or without IFN. Previous treatment must have been completed >= 8 weeks prior to screening.
  • Compensated cirrhosis defined as Child-Pugh score of ≤ 6 at Screening and no current or past clinical evidence of Child-Pugh B or C Classification or clinical history of liver decompensation including ascites noted on physical exam, bleeding varices, use of diuretics for ascites, or hepatic encephalopathy.
  • Absence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)

  • Participants enrolled with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 and HCV co-infection must also meet the following criteria:
  • Positive test result for human immunodeficiency virus antibody (HIV Ab) at Screening.
  • Naïve to treatment with any antiretroviral therapy (ART) with a cluster of differentiation (CD)4+ count greater than or equal to 500 cells/mm³ (or CD4+ % >= 29%), or
  • On a stable, qualifying HIV-1 ART regimen with CD4+ count >= 200 cells/mm³ (or CD4+ % >= 14%) at Screening; and plasma HIV-1 RNA below lower limit of quantification (LLOQ) by an approved plasma HIV-1 RNA quantitative assay at Screening and at least once during the 12 months prior to Screening.

Exclusion Criteria:
  • Positive test result for hepatitis B surface antigen (HbsAg) or positive test result for hepatitis B virus (HBV) deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) if HBsAg is negative.
  • Any cause of liver disease other than chronic HCV-infection.
  • HCV genotype performed during screening indicating co-infection with more than one HCV genotype
  • Clinically significant abnormalities, other than HCV infection or HCV/HIV co-infection
  • Chronic human immunodeficiency virus, type 2 (HIV-2) infection

  • Additional Exclusion Criteria for participants with HCV/HIV Co-Infection:

  • Treatment for an acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-associated opportunistic infection within 12 months of Screening or prophylaxis for an AIDS-associated opportunistic infection within 6 months of screening
  • Diagnosis of any clinical AIDS-defining event within 12 months prior to Screening.
