Member Dennis “pop smoke” of Hugfest fame sends us this one. Dr. Cecil has a lovely assessment on it as well. Great read.

    Dr. Cecil says it will take 50 years to treat all the vets in the system with the new drugs. We collaborated with him on a response and ask that everyone contact their reps to bring more attention to this. http://hcvets.com/Journals/VAfailsTreatingVets.htm

    What is left unmentioned is the fact that Telepravir/Bocepravir in the Interferon/Ribavirin cocktail is yesterday’s news. That’s like scraping penicillin off moldy bread to get an antibiotic. With the polymerase inhibitors right around the corner, the whole premise of Vertex falls flat. This article is brand new.We should be talking Sofosbuvir like the New Testament versus the Old.

    I like Dr. Cecil’s call for legislation. I’ve been wondering if Americans would be able to get treated in other countries, or get on clinical trials in other countries.

    Articles on medical tourism make for interesting reading.
