    Federal regulators this month opened a new era in the treatment of a deadly liver virus that infects three to five times more people than HIV. Now the question is: Who will get access to the new drug for hepatitis C, and when?
    The drug (brand name Sovaldi) will cost $1,000 per pill. A typical course of treatment will last 12 weeks and run $84,000, plus the cost of necessary companion drugs. Some patients may need treatment for twice as long.
    Hepatitis researchers call the drug a in the treatment of this deadly infection. More than 90 percent of patients who get the new drug can expect to be cured of their hepatitis C infection, with few side effects.

    I would have to die and I have a multi-millionaire cousin, not filthy rich, but 6-7 mil but I would never ask for a dime. If there is a pill out there I am sure you can find someone selling the shit cheaper around here. Fucking pill heads everywhere, a couple of years ago I found a bunch of oxy's at the fitness center in a big bottle that wasn't labeled. I would imagine 200-300 of the damned things, I thought it was a trap so I called the popo....of course.
