What we’ve all been waiting a long time for came true today. The FDA approved Sovaldi for production. Now to convince the government to buy it for me. With my luck and Obamacare, they’ll take the eugenics tack and say it’s simply too much to spend on a 62 year old Vet.
As for VA coming up with Sovaldi any time soon, rots a ruck. They bought a trainload of Victrelis triple-drug cocktail at bargain basement prices. This was shortly after Gilead revealed they were coming out with a new regimen. No wonder VA got a deal on Telepravir. It was headed for extinction by then anyway. What’s the deal on buying old technology? They sewed Alloderm into me in 2010 even though it had been recalled in 2007. Seems they use up the old before they buy the new. At this rate, Vets can expect to see a generic Sovaldi by 2025.
