    Incivek Prescriptions - Nov 4th update

    VRTX's INCIVEK/MRK's VICTRELIS:
    • We note that new prescriptions for Incivek were down more than expected, possibly due to a large number of HCV specialists attending the AASLD meeting in San Francisco (November 3-8). Total Incivek prescriptions for this week were 2244, a change of -1.9% from the previous week and new prescriptions were 1,281, a change of -11.3%. Total Victrelis prescriptions for this week were 819, a change of +2.1% from the previous week and new prescriptions for this week were 433, a change of -0.9% from the previous week.

    Not sure why Incivek prescriptions go down but Victrelis stay more or less unchanged. I wonder is this is causing some of the drop of the stock price?
