Gilead's HCV drug Sovaldi gets Europe OK

Gilead Sciences’ closely-watched hepatitis C drug Sovaldi has been given the green light in Europe.

The European Commission has granted marketing authorisation for Sovaldi (sofosbuvir) 400mg tablets

which, as part of HCV combination therapy with peg-interferon and ribavirin, offers cure rates of around 90% in previously-untreated adults. However, most significant is that the once-daily nucleotide analogue polymerase inhibitor is the first all-oral treatment option for up to 24 weeks for patients unsuitable for interferon.

  1. Hello Dr. Anthony,
    Thankyou so much for your site, and wealth of info, fantastic! I am HCV 1a positive, Australian, and need to access the new Sovaldi / Ledipasvir combo treatment as I’ve previously treated with Incivek / telaprivir and Interferon, so the ensuing resistances make this Sov / Led combo the most likely effective possibility. I lived in India for most of my adult life, and plan to return ASAP, so my question to you is whether you believe this combo will become available there, and in what kind of time frame (get out your crystal ball!!). I know that it’s hard to say, but I would imagine that even if talk re licensing with Gilead go pear shaped, the combo would anyway be manufactured generically (as I believe it is already being manufactured in China?)

    Again, thankyou for your wonderful site, it has been the most informative I’ve found in the Internet! Please respond with any advice you may have for me,

    Cheers
    Sophie

  2. Hi there, I found your site by way of Google even as looking for a related topic,
    your web site came up, it seems to be great. I’ve bookmarked it
    in my google bookmarks.
    Hello there, just become alert to your weblog through
    Google, and located that it’s really informative.

    to proceed this in future. A lot of folks will probably
    be benefited out of your writing. Cheers!

  3. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an extremely long comment
    but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say superb blog!

  4. It’s nearly impossible to find experienced people on this subject, however, you sound like you know what you’re
    talking about! Thanks
