Sofosvel (velpatasvir) 6 years 1 month ago #21129

Yes. I can attest to Beacon's integrity. Sofosvel just came out like 2 weeks ago, so it is still new. Monkmed and all that is fine also. If you want, you could steer them to Dr. Freeman @ GP2U.com, and let him write the script. He then forwards it directly to beacon, and the process is expedited that way. Sofosvel is Sofosbuvir, and Velpatasvir, and constitutes a complete, accepted fixed-dose combination for the treatment of all genotypes HepC.

This is very interesting. We have found a Dr. in BC who is willing to help out, so that the people will have a script and also follow-up, vl tests, and fibroscan. So, we were thinking that we would steer the patients to enroll in the Redemption Trial and then get their meds at Monkmed. If they do it this way, will it be the same price as Beacon?

I'm running around right now ... It's afternoon in BC, so I'll check back in a couple of hours..

Thanks muchly splitdog

I'm not sure how much MonkMed or their prices are. I went through Kingswood Pharmacy the first time, and it was ~$1200 shipped for two drugs Sofosbuvir and Daclatasvir. $840 for Sofosvel seems to be a good deal.

Hi CD,

Great news to hear that you have found a doctor willing to help.

Just to clarify the situation a bit, as splitdog says this is the Sofosvel thread about Beacon Pharmacueticals new Velpatasvir/Sofosbuvir generic which is manufactured in Bangladesh. The prices are only the cost of the medication excluding shipping.

The Redemption eTrials details can be found here fixhepc.com/redemption-imagine-freedom-from-hepatitis-c along with current pricing. These trials use the Indian licenced manufacture version of the generics, either Harvoni® or Solvadi® + Daklinza® depending on genotype plus they include freight costs, delivery guarantee, etc (plus back up and medical support from MonkMed if required) thus the higher pricing.

An email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. should result in answers to any more detailed questions you have regarding Redemption.

Thanks Gaj.. Okay.. I'm clear on what you say, and I read the info on the trial and see the price of the drugs but need to know how much more people in BC will have to pay for shipment. I have sent an email to Tim at Monkmed and am waiting for an answer. I need to know if shipping is included in the price of the trial (US $1600)..and if not, how much to Vancouver BC.

Hi CD,

No doubt MonkMed will respond to you but for others reading this in the future the worldwide shipping cost is included in the prices quoted. Please see about 2/3 of the way down the first post in the below link.

Sofosvel (velpatasvir) 5 years 11 months ago #22136

Splitdog,
you should consider data from this small Phase 2 trial (sof/vel/riba @ 24 weeks for retreatment)
www.hcv-trials.com/showStudy.asp?Study=112
www.catie.ca/en/treatmentupdate/treatmen...a-ribavirin-retreatm
www.natap.org/2016/EASL/EASL_11.htm
www.natap.org/2016/EASL/EASL_56.htm
Another news is Velpatasvir may get available in India ~ March 2017 (or earlier) as the local Indian trials of generic sof/vel end, unless the approval is expedited.
The sof/vel/vox trial for NS5A-experienced people is going to end in Jan 2017 (www.smartpatients.com/trials/NCT02607735) => sof/vel/vox may get to be FDA-approved in July 2017. Generic availability - 6+ months from that moment in India, unless local Indian trials requirement is waived there (it might happen because nothing else is better for retreatment) or 0+ months elsewhere (Bangladesh for example).
The main question in your case would be - how effective sof/vel/vox would be for retreatment of a sof/vel/riba & sof/dac combined failure for a fibrosis state. It may get answered in Jan 2017.
However, you should consider sof/vel/riba @ 24wks if your liver got worse. No more trial results for now.

EDIT: Please, note that people on this trial had been treated with suboptimal doses of velpatasvir before relapsing (25 and 50mg vs 100 mg). The natap publication includes more details, but there is a typo there - it is 50 mg that the dose of velpatasvir that 59% of prior relapsers had been treated with was, not 100 mg. The results may differ for those previously treated with the optimal 100 mg dose of velpatasvir or patients with an advanced liver disease.
Also, the problem is dac gives y93h resistance in 90% of variants after a relapse. aac.asm.org/content/58/9/5155.full
Velpatasvir is generally weak against Y93H in gen 3 viruses. However, 14 of 15 people with Y93H mutation were cured with sof+vel+vox, 9 of 11 (13 people with NS5A RAVs in total) people with gen 3 and y93h were cured with sof+vel+riba @ 24wks.
Both were phase 2 trials, so they do not provide statistically significant information. You may or may not get cured with sof + vel + ribavirin (for 6 months) now, if treated. More reliable statistical data on retreatment comes in 2017.

Side effects: mild dehydration, not a problem at all if I drink water at night, nothing to worry about
Diet and gastric ph are very important with velpatasvir. One must think what and when to eat to keep gastric pH low. Side effects disappeared 2 weeks after, unless I ate anything < 4hrs before the pill. SVR60.

Another good option for you could be to enroll into a phase 3 US trial of some other company. Abbvie for example has some meds that are effective for retreatment, but has not tested them on gen 3 people yet. A trial of some other company could get you cured earlier.
