The cynic in me says that it's a great way to publicly claim to be helping a whole nation while simultaneously getting research data for not too many $$$ and no significant impact on Gilead's commercial markets.

But best wishes to the Icelandic heppers for their luck.

Yes, see the Glossary definition of "Compassionate Access"

fixhepc.com/forum/glossary.html

But still, if you take away the well deserved cynicism that should be 1150 off the 185,000,000 need to treat, so now it's only:

185,998,850

And the total treated with Gilead medications will jump from 613,000 to 615,000 in the last 2 years.

At this rate the job should be done by the year 2618
YMMV

HI GAJ yes you are right, I guess Gilead were in need of some good press....

rumour has it that their reputation has been a little bruised as of late.

As for the magazine yeah its very good - its a national publication and you can find it in every liver clinic, most GP,s waiting rooms and outpatient clinic in New Zealand.
