Mr Clark, Jeremy, we are so honoured to have you here with us on our forum, and a very warm welcome to you! †

Your hard work and dedication in creating this organic compound has changed the direction of Hep C treatment, and how you have been treated is an absolute disgrace.† It`s because of your work that our good friend Jim, along with his trial buddies, finally cleared the virus earlier this year, after participating in a 7977 clinical trial, and we can`t thank you enough for that.† And also for the hope this has given to many of our members, and to Hep C sufferers round the world.

It`s a very sad state of affairs that you have lost your career through being put in a position of having to fight a legal battle to try and get justice, and I wish you all the luck that you so deserve in your future career, whatever that might be.†

I hope you`ll be staying around, you`re most welcome here!† ~ Jill

Thankfully, they look like their mom.:)

I am from NJ but we love rednecks in our part of Jersey;) .......we're south of the Soprano's...

Yea, I guess it's a little like fighting city hall.† Frustrating I'm sure. I do believe that there is something good waiting for you in the future, however. I hope it comes soon for you.

Thank you so much for coming on here with us. You have no idea how much it means to me to be able to thank you personally.

Please check in when you can, we need all the encouragement we can get.

Take care,

Jim

it is a great honour to meet you (well at least over forum/digitally) Mr.Clarke ;)

all over the world there are stories like yours. Researchers/inventors being ripped off by employers/supervisors, stripped off their patents. Whole system is pretty much corrupted by profit chasing game. I just want you to know, that you are for me a real hero. i know you ain't in this profession to get insanely rich, but you deserve at least a respect and reckognition for what have you done in the field, not to mention that by now you should have your own lab and all the resources to continue advancing in your profession.

i have always admired wisdom and moral decisions from Dr.Jonas Salk, but he received enormous reckognition in the world and with that fame gathered enough funds to continue his work. Heroes in labs these days are easily forgotten and overshadowed by big pharma greed in general public, but there are always people who will dig out true stories behind medical discoveries to at least say thanks to hard working inventors ;)

not sure how can we help your injustice, since we are a small community, but we are here for you (petitions, blogs,spreading word in public) ;) There are lots of people that went with psi-7977 clinical trial and it indeed seems like a remarkable molecule for treating hcv.

When i told my doc about your story, she wasnt surprised at all. She just said what do you expect from them (big pharma) to behave like? She is so keen in treating her patients with your invention, but afraid she might get it avaiable here in 20 or more years. Doctors are getting really frustrated cause of all that money game that big pharma plays, 

all the best and i hope you get a job soon! world needs more† people like you!

thank you!

So you're the sir and Mr. :). You have a very beautiful family.†

Yea, I'm in the US...a bona fide redneck from Alabama :).

Thank you for the well wishes. Unfortunately when you have a situation where a U.S. Government employee exploits his Government position for personal gain (I feel at my expense), those who could intervene/make a difference (i.e. other Government officials) apparently are not too keen on that idea.

Your still just a pup.....lol.† Those are my children in my picture. I am an "old" 59 years young, with a new lease on life thanks to you.

I hope you are able to find a path that suits you. As Lisa said if there is anything we can do to help please don't hesistate to ask. It's the least we could do.† Are you in the US?

I am sorry to hear about the loss of your career, but believe me, what you have done is give hope to millions of people like me. Is there any way us†the general public and infected can support your cause via a petition or†something else? You have helped us, is there anyway we can help you?

Above all a sincere thank you and let us know if, and how we can help. I do believe nothing is a lost cause and there is a story here to be heard and told. I am sure your story would also make a fantastic film, because damn it, why should you lose everything! Sorry I feel a little angry about this......

Makes me feel kinda old...sir and Mister biggrin.gif (I just turned 42 so maybe I am gettin old :). I'm glad you are doing well and hope your good health continues. where are you in the picture next to you name?

I've been unemployed for the better part of the last two years. the last research job I did was a short, 6 month project at a local University in 2011, I think.

Wow, it is an honor to talk to you sir as I feel that your hard work has saved my life and the lives of several of my friends. And potentially millions of people around the world.

Are you still involved in reasearch of any kind?

I hope you are doing well.†

God bless you.

Zlikster,

thank you for the kind words. the litigation has cost me my career--I wonder how many inventors can be killed before there's no more inventions.

It's always amazing how the articles re Dr. Schinazi fail to mention that he is a salaried U.S. Government researcher, paid by your and my (well used to be my) tax dollars.

Stay well.

Wow, what a great story.

I remember asking my Dr. last January if she thought I should go on the 7977 trial and she said her boss, Dr. Jacobson, said that this might be the "one". I guess he was right as 100% of the people on my trial are still clear.

Today is the day I started one year ago. My wife just said she remembers telling me it was St. Patty's day and there would be a lot of traffic in the city. I stayed on the east side and it was fine. I met Vicky and Al while on the blood line. I also met my nurses and all the good people at Weill Cornell who are so dedicated to helping people, just like the people described in this article.

What a turn my life has taken since that day. I do feel like I hit the lottery. Thanks to all these dedicated researchers many lives will be saved.

even more interesting that researcher/chemist that invented PSI-6130 (GS-7977) mr.Jeremy L Clark was suing Schinazi for illegally obtanin patent rights/fradulent contract and filled a civil lawsuit and, surprise surprise, lost (http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/USCOURTS-alnd-5_10-cv-01487/pdf/USCOURTS-alnd-5_10-cv-01487-0.pdf)

Schinazi sold Pharmasset to Gilead (obviously just cause of GS-7977 potential) and from that transfer he pocketed 400mil$ just...makes me sick, that real heros in labs go unoticed and without a penny.

wherever you are mr.Jeremy L Clark, thank you for your hard work...

Hi Mark,

Glad you posted that article. Didn't know he was a bloody Kiwi! Doesn't help much, as sofosbuvir won't be available in Australia or

New Zealand for 6-8 years. Cheers.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for posting this

I'm so glad there are a lot people here that look deep for this stuff. I've been posting the "CURE" petition any chance I can and holding back sometimes because I sound like broken record. I had just missed the boat for that last trial in NY. Well other than that the American liver foundation is having a Walk on April 20 in NY. Ill be going. I'm really curious to see how much publicity GS 7977 will get. But I fall in with liver disease sufferers as a whole and want to do something.† I'm hoping† maybe to meet up with other people ( from this forum?) and w/ Hep C in NY area and see what other groups may be out there That are trying to get the public awareness of the facts how bad the available treatments are and how. I'll be taking a camera and post some Pics of this event. I''ll look for the links and add them here If anyone interested OK?† Hope to see some of you.
