This is the most significant drug development in the history of Hepatitis C. Two drugs that cured across three genotypes WITHOUT Ribavirin or Interferon! Why is the entire world not outraged by Gilead's refusal to make this life-saving drug combination available? If this were the cure for cancer would the response be different? This IS the cure for Hepatitis C, a disease that now kills more people than AIDS. HCV is now the leading reason for liver transplants!
