Avatar m tn But the I dont see any update in the Roche website or any other pages on this change. With all the problems in the Pharmaceutical world in India, I am not sure if I should go for the drug or not. What should I do? I need to get the injection tomorrow.
1547916 tn?1294284211 I seem to remember Malaysia in general is not as chaotic as India, but it's no fun travelling in crowded buses or trains while full of INF/riba especially in the middle of summer. If your liver is not seriously threatened, it would be worth considering delaying treatment if you are likely to be better located later. Whatever you decide there is a wealth of knowledge here, so take advantage of it, as it may be a rough 24 weeks. Welcome.

Avatar f tn Hello friends, I am a wholesaler/distributor dealing in generic version of rare/essential/life-saving drugs, based in India. Since the cost of treatment is very high and normally not covered by the insurance agencises, the life of the patients go at high-risk. I have already helped a lot of patients with Sofobusvir/Ribavirin, Hepcinat-LP tablets. The medicine can be arranged and dispatched from India at my risk and it will be an honor for me if a life is saved!
Avatar m tn If the Hemopurifier being tested by AEMD in India is able to reduce viral loads in blood of HCV infected subjects, then how could this not be anything but helpful? I am sure that it is not cure because not every copy of the virus is in the blood. There are likely only a small percentage that in the blood. But from the virus''s point of view , is it not a numbers game. Because the reason that a person's own immune system can not rid the body of the virus is because the virus keeps mutating?
Avatar m tn I joined this forum 4 years ago and finally finished tx for type 3 December 2015 - no side effects from the tx. Very easy I am trying to buy sofosbuvir and ribavirin online from India for a friend who has type 4. I have been having no luck; the pharmacies do not answer the queries etc. Does anyone have experience with buying the drugs online?
13771170 tn?1439544005 2 years ago i was diagnosed HCV and subcompensated cirrhosis ( CP 8 points ). In russia neither social medical insurance nor additional insurance ( additionlay paid by employer or by youself ) cover HCV cure. So everybody had to pay for drugs ( not cheap, though ) and good doc from his wallet. Year ago i was very sad, because of i'm interferon-ineligible due to low platelet count.

Avatar f tn I saw Dylan in Berkeley in 1965. I'm not much on movies. I like to travel. I have been to a retreat in India 11 times. I have been a strict vegetarian for 42 years. It helps the liver a lot.
Avatar m tn My doctor says we will have a re- treatment with Pegintron, RBV and Telaprevir. Is Telaprevir available in India. If not where in the Asian countries can i have the treatment.
Avatar f tn Sofosbuvir will NOT be available in India next year as far as I know. India has had many issues treating hepatitis C using older treatments and doesn't I believe even had triple therapy that has been available for 2 years in the US and Europe. If approved by the drug regulatory agencies in the US and Europe it will only be available in the US and Europe and I guess Canada in 2014. India and other countries may have to wait many years for the treatment to be available.

"Based on studies to date, Romark has decided on a nitazoxanide dose of 675 mg using a controlled-release tablets to achieve better bioavailability. This formulation will be further evaluated in Phase 3 trials.

Avatar m tn last i read its being tested in Delhi India......write the manufacturer....i did but they never got back with me...
1635208 tn?1300810760 6 Clinical studies have shown that when subjects with HCV genotype 1a have this polymorphism at baseline, the efficacy of simeprevir in combination with PEG and ribavirin is substantially reduced.6 Consequently, alternative therapy should be considered for such patients.6 http://education.questdiagnostics.
Avatar m tn It's my understanding that most of the US meds originate in India. I read a while back that Gilead bought the rights to the new miracle drugs from the inventor who is East Indian. That's been known for a while now. There is one giant drug company in India. Begins with a T. You can research it. They make all kinds of meds. Probably even make Viagra. LOL. They make most everything for the US.
Avatar f tn Hello Prabhak , i see that you are in Bangalore, India . Sovaldi is now available here , i wonder why your mothers hepatologist would put her through Inf and riba withought the sovaldi !! How many weeks is the doc wanting to treat your mom with inf and riba with !! please check the link below i am pasting and talk to your moms doc again .
Avatar m tn I am being treated by the head of hepatolgy at All India Instt of Medical Sciences--- the biggest hosp in India. I have taken a second opinion from another renowned hepatologist who has been entrusted by the govt of India to develop Asia's biggest Hepatobiliary instt. I have actually completed more than 72 weeks and will see my doctor in 3 days. My personal gastro says he may continue me on IFN. Another junior doctor in the same instt once said they may give me this lifelong.
Avatar m tn Based on emerging data, this trial was unblinded and all genotype 2 HCV-infected subjects continued the original planned treatment and received SOVALDI + ribavirin for 12 weeks, and duration of treatment with SOVALDI + ribavirin in genotype 3 HCV-infected subjects was extended to 24 weeks. Eleven genotype 3 subjects had already completed SOVALDI + ribavirin for 12 weeks at the time of the amendment." http://www.fda.gov/forconsumers/byaudience/forpatientadvocates/ucm377920.

Avatar n tn I don't see how all of those tests could be wrong. Therefore, if your test in India came back negative, it seems to me that the test done in India must not be correct. You probably need to go to a knowledgeable doctor in a metropolitan area in India (a gastrointestinal MD who specializes in Hepatitis C treatment or a hepatologist) for further testing and to discuss a treatment plan.
Avatar n tn Hello guys. I am Bhushan Ghate. I am from Nagpur, MS, India. I am suffering from ankylosing spondylitis since 1989. I am bedridden since 1996. But from few days i am able to walk with the help of walker. My bone density is too low. My doctor said that my bone density match to the bone density of 100-105 year old person. I am ankylose from neck to knee. That means i am having bamboo spine & my complete hip & both knees are ankylose.
Avatar m tn Sovaldi and Olysio may be prescribed together, or each may be separately combined with ribavirin and in some cases peginterferon as well. Although Victrelis (boceprevir) plus ribavirin and peginterferon is also approved, this regimen is associated with increased side effects and longer duration of treatment, and is therefore not considered a preferred regimen.
Avatar m tn Hi All, My bro in law had been diagnosed Hep C long time back and was on interferon inj in the UK, now he has a relapse and i wanted to know the cost of interferon and ribavirin inj in india?
306594 tn?1443391457 Hi all My husband has chronic hep C, geno 1b and is in his 6th week of using Interferon/Ribavirin/Simeprevir and he's feeling lousy. Has anyone ever used this combination in conjunction with Sofosbuvir (Sovaldi) and if so did you need any other supporting drugs?
Avatar n tn If it is so what is the cost. Any body has recently undergone the treatment recently in India and Chennai in particular. thanks, Vasu.
Avatar m tn I m really happy to hear about that i can purchase more cheaper drugs from India. My mom already have tried standart curring course fro cepatitis C with Ribavirin and something else, but the problem is that despite of all side effects, my mothers health system doesnt accept that medicine, and she got allergy from that. Our country doctors (We come from Latvia) only recomendation was a generics sovaldi, for 80000EUROS!!!! (my year sallary is ~8000EUR) so this is pretty unreal.
Avatar f tn I see you live in Mumbai, is she under the hospital there ? There are treatments available but I dont know the situation in India. I suggest you continue to ask questions and get support here but also go along to the hospital with your mother and find out all you can about her condition.
