Found this site from Greg Jeffries. My insurance from my job kicks in about Feb. 14 and will be trying to find a doctor in Florida to give me a prescription for generics. My research tells me I maybe interested in the Harvoni combo (2 generics) I'm 1a with hep c for 18 years. Really appreciate the information. Sincerely.

Most doctors in USA will not write an RX for generics since there is no such thing here, and legally they might not be able to do it. www.gp2u.com, Dr. Freeman or Dr. Devsam in Australia/Tasmania ($70 USD) can give you an RX good for Twinvir or compounded Australian generics. Indian generics seem to be more complicated, you need an RX from an Indian doctor. Ghandi Medicos may be able to help, but importing from India may be more problematic. I'm on Twinvir and feel like it is working.

CEO steps aside yesterday, but maintains a key role and their share prices are not exactly the yuppie market they were when he took the reigns years ago, that massive profiteering time has boomed, now it is just a sick sad sack of greed.... Let's watch Merck coming into bat with their Gen 1 and 4 tabs...at a 30% undercut, a share price of over $50 ... still a compete disaster fiscally. :-1:

Hi Tommy,

You may want to enquire about the Redemption trials too. Listed by NIH in U.S. fixhepc.com/forum/media-news/625-redempt...cial-in-the-u-s.html

It is organised by FixHepC and coordinated worldwide by Monkmed who I understand have a list of U.S. doctors by state who will prescribe. Sorry can't find the post about that at the moment but mgalbrai (Mike) who started that thread is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and a very helpful guy to talk to about the U.S. situation. :)

Thanks, LG. Very interesting! Does this mean that Gilead executives are starting to feel the heat?


Who knows for sure, but the article and the general feeling on twitter is suggesting that..
I mean, he's made billions for them (and himself) so I guess he wants to be associated with success
and now he's off to do something else I guess that doesn't associate him with the backlash, that does seem to be building

Hi Tommy,
Good advice here.
I sent you a PM.
Unless you are f-3 or f-4, you will be waiting a lot longer than for your insurance to kick in for coverage.
Fight for you coverage if you like,
I just got the generics and got well while I did it.
Mike

Gilead has just posted Q4 sales for 2015.

investors.gilead.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=69964&p=irol-earnings

* Total sales in Q4 2015: $8.4 billion (up from $7.2 billion in Q4 2014), of which antivirals account for $7.9 billion.

* Total sales for 2015: $32.2 billion (up from $24.5 billion in 2014), primarily from Sovaldi at $21.2 billion, compared to $18.1 billion in 2014.

... Draw your own conclusions?
Diagnosed Jan 2015: GT3, A0+F0/F1. Fatigue + Brain-Fog.
Started Sof+Dac from fixHepC 10-Nov-2015. NO sides.
Pre-Tx: AST 82, ALT 133, Viral Load 1 900 000.
Week4: AST 47, ALT 58. VL < 15 (unquantifiable).
Week12 (EOT): AST 30, ALT 26, VL UND

From the San Francisco Chronicle.

Below is another article from Radio NZ detailing what the ramifications are in relation to the TPPA and access to medicines if this trade agreement is ratified. Although Gilead is not mentioned you can bet they have had significant input.

Hey Mike

Congrats on the moderator status - just saw that now. Looks like you are getting a good following from HCV people in the states. You suit your nick name of The Pied Piper. :+1:

Thank you.
I still view myself as an "enlisted" man. I suppose "warrant officer" will be tolerable. I will just keep piping and try not to poke the wrong buttons.

Gilead are rather clever at forward thinking. They offer financial support to organisations in need. ie Charities and Public Health Authorities and of course, seeing as they need Dr research too ....some Drs.

Found this post on a site when researching getting battery storage for my solar panels:


USD3000 in USA and $15000 here [Australia]. Someone is kidding - or making a killing. I suspect reverse calculated what the market could bear off our high electricity prices rather than actual costs and margins. If greed doesnt get in the way this will be the future at some point - but as an engineer I will wait a few product cycles to get this all sorted , safe and reliable - and properly priced with competition.


Suc is life said a more honest man...
