To the Editor In a small pilot study, Dr Osinusi and colleagues1 reported the safety and high sustained virologic response rate for combined treatment using ledipasvir, a hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS5A inhibitor, with sofosbuvir, an HCV NS5B polymerase inhibitor, in previously untreated, noncirrhotic patients with HCV genotype 1 and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) co-infection.
