"While AbbVie is widely expected to be the second entrant to the soon-to-explode market for hepatitis C cocktail drugs after standard-bearer Gilead Sciences, promising data from latecomer Merck have analysts relegating the Illinois company to third place despite some excellent late-stage results.

The results, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, are part of AbbVie's expansive late-stage program in which it tracked more than 2,300 patients, and the data will support an application for FDA approval expected this quarter."
