Gilead reported weak Harvoni sales today. Their stock dropped 9%. The poor babies only earned 7.8 billion this quarter
This drug is the best selling drug of all time in dollar terms. They have competition now from Merck. Maybe generic importation will still be available for other drugs, but a treatment that costs $90,000 for 12 weeks could get blocked. Twinvir, the generic equivalent, is now $1,000.
This may become a problem for Gilead. They want you to pay $90,000. Or go and die: after all, what use are you to them??
There is a list of drugs that are not allowed for generic importation. This drug could be added if they manage to influence ($$$) the right people.
But you can still get your meds and be cured without these evil bastards
