A Voxilaprevir intermediate is now available in China. :cheer:

:+1: Thanks for finding this SD, although an intermediate won't be suitable for direct purchase and compounding due to solubility issues/bioavailability it means that generics manufacturers are able to develop a usable final product. :)

I did not understand that an intermediate is not a good product.

The bottom line, American manufacturers are sourcing API's in the 3rd world. I was cured by Incepta Twinvir that is produced with Chinese API's, perhaps even an exact copy of Harvoni. The generics are the same meds as the name brand. You guys are going to be cured.....and will join me in giving the middle finger daily to the companies like Gilead.

Greedfighter, it means intermediate is for factories, home compounding is not possible, unlike with some other drugs.
The quality of drug depends on quality control and chemical processes employed by both ingredient and pill manufacturer. Every factory is different, but both Bangladeshi manufacturers have been successful so far at ensuring the quality of the final product.

Gilead produces api in factories in many countries, the data is publicly available.

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. SVR12 - 09 June 2017

Curious to know of any updates on the general availability of voxilaprevir – or any of the other second generation NS3/4A protease inhibitors.

Gilead submitted their three-drug combo (voxilaprevir/velpatasvir/sofosbuvir) for FDA approval here last December – have not read of their progress.

Are the manufacturers of generic medicines moving closer to the release of NS3/4A protease inhibitors ??

Hello J. Eugene,

I know at least one of the generics manufacturers are looking at it. FDA approval has to happen first but it will probably go down as observed before with Bangladesh first and India 6-9 months after FDA approval.

We do have a very good NS3/4A and NS5A combination now - Viekira.



As you can see, in GT3 paritaprevir is almost as good as Vox (GS-9857) and better than the Elbasvir in Zepatier (which is approved for GT3 with Sof). The ombitasvir is just as potent as Velpatasvir and stronger than the Grazoprevir in Zepatier.

On the practical side of things, Abbvie Viekira is marketed in Egypt and can be sourced reasonable affordably, meaning a Sof+Vel+Vox potency combination is available now.

The trials of Sof + Viekira and Sof + Zepatier show it works well:

I thought the US FDA had established fast-track on pending Voxilaprevir approval. That means within 6 months. Tomorrow is 6 months. No word yet?

Thank you Dr. Freeman. I was going to say the wait is killing me.....but no. :)
How long after that do you think it will be before Beacon is ready to dispense Vox?
My Vel expiration date is Jan 2018.

Hello Splitdog,

It will definitely be after the FDA approval, but how fast depends on things that have not happened yet. They were pretty quick last time, but lots of things have to happen internally before they can release it.

Some progress – and a name for Gilead’s new 3DAA

Vosevi

Gilead Press Release – June 23, 2017

European CHMP Adopts Positive Opinion for Gilead’s Vosevi® (Sofosbuvir/Velpatasvir/Voxilaprevir) for the Treatment of All Chronic Hepatitis C Genotypes

http://www.gilead.com/news/press-releases/2017/6/european-chmp-adopts-positive-opinion-for-gileads-vosevi-sofosbuvirvelpatasvirvoxilaprevir-for-the-treatment-of-all-chronic-hepatitis-c-genotypes

Not certain how long the European Commission will take to approve the drug.

The FDA here has a target action date under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act of August 8, 2017.

It will be very interesting to see how Gilead prices Vosevi and how it is marketed alongside their existing Epclusa (Sofosbuvir/Velpatasvir) and Harvoni (Sofosbuvir/Ledipasvir)

Will be watching – and watching too for the generic counterparts

So ...

FDA approval date will be August 8 ...
... and ...
Alibaba already shows a trading company, Zhejiang Chemicals, listing three different intermediates ...

Therefore ...

Beacon should have Magicavir* available on August 10.
(Okay, maybe not quite that fast.)

Recent history suggests it won't be long now Splitdog. I bet Dr. Freeman actual has a pretty good idea of when it will be. In any case, we're cheering for you Splitdog.
_______________

* my entry in the naming contest.
_______________

I've been curious about the nomenclature, and the obvious just struck me ....

NS5B RNA polymerase inhibitors .... the "B" = buvir
NS5A inhibitors ... the "A" = asvir
NS3/4A protease inhibitors ... the "P" in Protease = previr
