Diagnosed with hep c - geno. 1a in 1995, no symptoms, treatment with Inteferon and Ribavarin didn't work after 32 weeks. Now trying to get approval for simeprevir and sofosbuvir, denied twice by my Insurance Comp. Even after Dr. Appealed. Cost is to expensive,, waiting for stage 3 or 4 scarring, now 2, for me DEATH is cheaper

I would like to see the statistics of these meds used to treat hep c infected patients with some cirrhosis. I have been pre-approved for transplant, have low MELD score of 6, and will soon find out if the hepatologists will treat me. If not, I will have to go to another hospital. All the best success to those who have been cured with the new treatment regimens. My journey has been for 18 years, 7 GI specialists, one interrupted treatment with peginterferon and ribaviran, while working.

I was diagnosed with hep c 15 years ago . Went through ribovirin / interferon treatment for 9 months . It forked for a year , then virus came back . I had a life saving liver transplant 18 months ago . I still have hep c and hep b . My docs are waiting for new treatment break through before trying to cure my c and b . Us this new stuff going to be available to those of us on immunosuppressant drug regimens ?

"Competing companies" is PRECISELY why we need to target Gilead HARD. The underlying rationale is HORRIFYING IN THE ABSOLUTE EXTREME. If that is the casual or "acceptable" excuse for letting Gilead off the hook on this, TREATMENT discovery and cures are horribly doomed. Had we accepted that glib bit of pharma propaganda as a "justification" we would NOT have Atripla. How will we get treatments for TB, multidrug resistant gonorrhea, Klebsiella, etc etc if a company can get away with that crap?
