I'm being very charitable to GILD. It's current market cap represents a cure cost of $800/person x 150 million. Maybe $1600/cure globally would be more acceptable to you.
If GILD drops the price of its HCV drugs 97% and treats 150,000,000 infected globally for $2.500/cure....HCV doesn't exist in 2 years, but GILD will have paid out $240/share in dividends ..Board has fiduciary duty
Miravirsen is a mir-122 inhibitor similar in principal to Rg-101 that was also being developed in San Diego....Roche bought Sabtaris for $485M......At this point I think one of the big biotechs should step in and pick up RGLS on the cheap.
We should like to analyse our experience of renal failure in association
with jaundice during the years 1956-1964 at Hammersmith Hospital.
During this period 384 patients have required dialysis treatment
for acute or acute on chronic renal failure, and of these 81, or 21% have
been jaundiced, defined as a serum bilirubin over l. 5 mg. %. A further
five patients were reported to be clinically icteric, but as the serum
bilirubin was not measured they have not been included. We have omitted
from consideration all patients with renal failure who recovered on conservative
management alone, all patients who died of their primary disease
before dialysis was considered necessary, or who died before dialysis could
be undertaken. Thus we are only considering here a group of patients
with severe renal failure whose blood ureas all exceeded 350 mg. % at
some point in their illness.
The 81 patients have been subdivided into 12 groups depending on
the predominant aetiology of the jaundice ( Table I ). There is some degree
of overlap in the groups as there may be mild haemolysis in some obstetric
patients, and infection was obviously present in some patients with obstructive
Tuesday will also be the deadline for the FDA to decide whether to approve Gilead's latest hepatitis C pill. Gilead's last two hepatitis C launches, of Sovaldi and Harvoni, broke financial records, but those were restricted to certain genotypes of the virus. The new pill would be approved for all genotypes, not only enlarging the market, but also removing the need to test the patient's genotype before writing a prescription.
I work in the air traffic control tower in Boston. When the radar went out last week we hooked up the Kitchen Aid microwave from the break room. It worked good and kept the air traffic control system running.
The gift of 100,000 chickens is to be distributed among countries with high poverty levels: mostly nations in sub-Saharan Africa, but also including Bolivia, reports Reuters.
this is a no gain situation....it will take 27 years to treat 100M people at current price/treatment rate....3M new cases a year x 27 years = 81M new cases in 27 years............drop price of harvoni quadruple treatment rate
even worse is the Isis inspired Orlando mass killer was seen at the Pulse night club with the gay alligator that ate the two 2 year old at Disney.
I agree with the Constitution that all Americans have the right to bear arms. When this amendment was adopted two hundred years ago it pertained to single shot, musket toting militas I see no Constitutional language or construction that says Americans are entitled to bear concealed weapons..
