Great post Tommy,

Too bad all these articles are by corrupt or ignorant people. The "real world" issue is most people are being denied treatment.

Most people in the world have access to generic medications they can buy and import. I actually realized just today, that by accessing generics, that cost me $1400, I saved a lot of money. Had my insurance approved me for treatment, I would have paid at least $4500 co-pay. What a win :cheer: :+1:

This article from MD Live is talking about an article from the Lancet - which is the number 1 medical journal in the world.

The title: Should Generic DAAs Be More Widely Imported?

The conclusion: Yes

YMMV
