Avatar f tn Cocoa, like lots of other commodities, trades on futures markets. The markets let both buyers and sellers hedge risk by fixing prices in advance. But something weird happened in the London market recently: Contracts to buy cocoa in July were significantly more expensive than contracts to buy cocoa in December. That suggested somebody was making a big buy in July. "We knew it was a possibility that one market player was getting his hand on a large quantity of cocoa," Pipitone said.
Avatar m tn Scenario: i stopped into a massage parlor to ask about pricing. Its the type of place that does happy endings ( maturbate person at end). I did not stay however i inquired as to price. The women came out and introduced herself and shook my hand. She looked like she just finished with a client and may or may not have washed her hands. I am an anxious type person and tend to pick my nails and on my index finger had torn the skin back and had a small cut.
Avatar m tn While I am hoping to attain SVR this time around, it is good to know there are some promising new drugs coming down the pipeline (just in case). In addition, if the new drugs make treatment a little easier for those treating, that will be fabulous.
Avatar m tn Over the past six years, my research group has sampled thousands of medicines used to treat tuberculosis, malaria, and major bacterial infections in emerging markets. Of these medicines, 3,695 were allegedly made by Indian companies. We tested them for quality and published the results in peer-reviewed publications.

Avatar n tn You can try benadryl too, it’s an antihistamine and available generically as ‘diphenhydramine’ in the local drug store OTC. Prescription aids like Lunesta and Ambien work VERY well; I think Ambien is available now in generic form. That’s something to start with; others will most likely offer some other thoughts as well.

And C- Of course I will have one at 48 weeks and 6 months later if still undetectable. But what about these remaining 2 (finally!!) 2 months? What would be the standard of practice if I were still insured? Would not having 1 between 24 and 48 weeks be unwise for anything other than anxiety reduction (I wish I could buy a PCR on ebay).
572651 tn?1530999357 NHS in the UK decides what drugs their patients can take and eliminates the others. They look at the cost vs efficacy and make their decisions on the financial side (and probably other factors) as to whether there is enough beneft to justify the expense. In the case of Gilenya, it appears they are saying no.
Avatar m tn Well, it seems like there is no other cause than genes to this (probably), but since I really dont like being this underweight, are there any drugs that could help me gain weight (in other words eat more/ slow metabolism). Like some steroids or something? Again, I have tried the "eat more" thing, but it doesnt seem to work very well. At first I do gain weight, but I get pretty bad diarrhea ETC. from eating too much.
1130586 tn?1316266292 Keep in mind that these drugs are so new that everyone (doctors, insurance companies, Medicare, etc.) have to catch up as far as protocol, length of treatment, disbursement and so on. All in good time. I just pray that when Medicare and other insurance companies see the price tag, won't draw an X instead of a check mark on the authorization request. Keep your fingers crossed...
1310633 tn?1430224091 By letting local governments sell bonds for cash, China wants to rely on nimble markets rather than inflexible regulations to keep spendthrift units in check. The stakes are high. A bond market is the centerpiece in China's blueprint to mop up fiscal troubles and keep its economy growing at an even pace, giving it needed room to start other bold financial reforms.
Avatar f tn Zepatier (elbasvir and grazoprevir) with or without ribavirin, was FDA approved for genotype 1 & 4, yesterday. The pricing is better than the other available treatments, so that is a step in the right direction. There is a Fair Pricing Coalition meeting later today and a conference call with Merck next week. More to come regarding patient assistance and pricing.
Avatar f tn 4% growth in 2010 and 8.4% in 2011. Like elsewhere in Asia, India has rebounded quickly - compared to the West - from the global economic downturn. India's super-rich have taken their place alongside financial elites elsewhere, and as the country's middle class grows, vast numbers of people are emerging from poverty. The country is now producing world-class multinational companies such as Wipro, Infosys, Tata and others.
Avatar m tn Insurance Coverage For Emerging Therapies in the Treatment of Hepatitis C Virus PRNewswire/ -- HealthLeaders-InterStudy and Fingertip Formulary find that only about half (53 percent) of surveyed pharmacy directors expect their health plans to cover both Merck's boceprevir and Vertex/Johnson & Johnson/Mitsubishi Tanabe's telaprevir, when they enter the market for the treatment of the hepatitis C virus.
Avatar n tn Despite this apparent miscalculation from an otherwise savvy management team, it’s unlikely that carping about drug pricing in a free market system — even when it’s done publicly by high profile members of Congress — will lead to any substantive change. Other than trying to shame away capitalism, Congress doesn’t have the tools to control individual drug costs. Nevertheless, biotech indices have sold off sharply over the past week. Fear of pricing pressure is powerful stuff indeed.

333672 tn?1273792789 Hopefully, with that many drugs in the pipeline, at least one will get approved fairly soon. I think there is pressure on the FDA to approve these drugs quickly since there is a strong need for better MS treatments. I saw on another thread you were asking about immunosuppressants after cancer. I don't know anything about whether that's a good idea or not, but I wanted to reassure you that the CRAB drugs (including Avonex) are immunomodulators and don't suppress the immune system.
Avatar m tn What are the best on-line places to buy Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra? Best in terms of quality of product, price, and customer service. I have discussed this with my doctor and have a prescription, but am thinking I can maybe get a better deal on-line.
