Good story about Greedy Gilead and their HCV drug pricing in todays LA times. (Shared from hepatitis C NZ).

We're all paying a high price for drug company profiteering
The drug companies are ripping us off, pill by pill, shot by shot. Instead of working to earn reasonable returns by relieving our suffering and saving lives, they now focus on profits above all.

Ive joined the party and added my 10 cents worth. Good to see that the press in the US are printing these articles.

If anyone who reading this has Hep C then please know there is a safe legal way that you can legally import generic versions of these new treatments mentioned in this story via a clinical trial known as Redemption set up by James Freeman a Tasmanian GP. The Redemption Trial is FDA approved and the generic medication used has been proven to be just as effective as the branded products produced by Gilead. Google search for James Freeman GP2U or Fixhepc. Dont let the unscrupulous greed of big pharma hold your life to ransom. Get well soon.« less

not starting a new thread but have a go at this one- Aljazeera, has huge readership, there were a few comments there but no generic ones.
www.aljazeera.com/news/2016/07/hepatitis...160707040458197.html
and within that is a link 6 months old, but comments are still open so I stuck one in too
