Latest on generic Sovaldi and where and how much and official testing.  If I weren't SVR I MIGHT even consider a vacation.  But I am not sure about getting counterfeit drugs.  However, it will be wonderful for the many people in the poorer nations. Hard to believe that Hep C can now be considered a curable disease after all the years of long side effect treatment with low percentages on SVR.    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-03-08/-10-copy-of-gilead-s-blockbuster-sovaldi-appears-in-bangladesh

How very lucky we are to have hope today!!!!

Hello everyone

The Egyptian Sovaldi is currently being registered in the MOH in many countries in order to be officially exported.

latest news from Egypt regarding generic Sofosbuvir. It's getting interesting. Apparently Marcyrl was too early with news about delivering it's MPI Viropack to pharmacies.

Hi Kit,

of course there will be scammers. Already there is a warning about fake Sovaldi circulating on black market, but this generic should be in official pharmacies and they have pretty tough laws over there. Only worry is indeed quality control in production of generic Sofosbuvir, but since this is a legal volume license from Gilead, i hope there are no issues. Will let you know as soon as i get more information.

cheers!

Hi Zlikster

I am happy to know you are fast on decision. As for me, I would wait until first statistics or ct will come out (surprised, there are no quality test approved, or the formula is so simple to copy) And the country is well known as touristic place, and there are scammers for sure. I do not anything to advise about that.

I wish you good luck and pure stuff and waiting for your good news.

Yes, Zlikster, don`t we all miss a good bit of Riba rage?!  Luckily I`ve managed to hold on to some of mine!  wink

As far as I know you`d need a residency permit to be treated in Portugal, and you`d still have to pay for some things like doctors` appointments but at discounted rates.  Lovely climate there though! 

Thanks for the info on generic Sofosbuvir in Egypt and do keep us updated! 

Best of luck!

Cheers Jill :)

From what i have found. Marcyrl pharma from Egypt started distributing (4 distributers) MPI Viropack (400mg Sofosbuvir) licensed from Gilead last week to the pharmacies in Egypt. Cost is round 350$ pet bottle (converted from egyptian pounds). I still do not have information can it be freely purchased in pharmacies by anyone who wants it or is it only for egyptian nationals with prescription or there is a different price for foreigners. Looking for arabic active speaker to call pharmacies and double check. In any case, news about generic Sofosbuvir on egyptian market is REAL people :)

As soon as i get information regarding purchasing options i am off to book tickets for Egypt. "Cairo buyers club" for real!

i knew it i am gonna nail some Sofosbuvir love this year and i kinda miss some riba rage obviously ;D

thanks once again to all the support, this forum is, as usual, more than amazing!

Lisabon sounds fine, but i am not sure they have healthcare free to all like NHS? ;)

Hi Zlikster,

I know how long you`ve been trying to find a way to get hold of Sovaldi, my friend, and I wish you all the best of luck in your search!  I was going to say just be careful but you`re an intelligent and sensible man so I know you will be. 

Always good to hear from you, keep in touch!

(PS. Maybe you should consider moving to Portugal...100% subsidised!!)

Zlik,

I'm not sure about Egypt, but we recently had a member in the UAE that had mentioned looking throughout the region, but I'm not sure how that ended up. I honestly haven't heard many updates coming out of that area. There is so much turmoil in that country right now, it's difficult to say what is available. With Libya next door, it has to be a dangerous position to put yourself in at this moment. I'll keep my ears open and see what I can find out nonetheless. Malcolm has been on top of this and may have some advice or information for you. Hang in there!

Hey Zlikster,

I hope we get some action on this topic everywhere. Affordable treatment should be available to anyone, anywhere, on demand. There are entirely too many hoops to jump through and even the wholesale prices of these medications are obscene. I wish you every bit of luck and good fortune in achieving your goal of SVR. We will do our level best to assist anyone in finding credible, proven and approved sources for treatment and payment assistance programs. Thanks for your understanding and continued participation on the forum!

Tig

Was about to post few news articles from few unverified sites, forgot completely about no links policy aww I get easily excited when someone mentiones Sofosbuvir smile

Still, we should start talking about these possible generic brands of Sofosbuvir from Egypt which are, seems so, already on the egyptian market.
Would be great if there is anyone on Sofosbuvir based tx from Egypt on this forum to confirm which brand/name of Sofosbuvir is used in Egypt. PM me please!

On some egyptian websites there are warnings about fake Sovaldi products already on the market and that there is approved generic Sofosbuvir "MPI Viropack" available in 30 or so offical pharmacies (half of em in Cairo) from 14.02.2015. If google translated well from arabic, price per bottle is round 350$. Seems like a legit news, but you never know. Would be great if we had a proper verification from someone in Egypt. I was advised lately from quite a lot of reliable pharmacist and high ranking officials to obtain Sofosbuvir from Egypt.

Kit you can send me links via PM, just don't post em on forum threads.

ready for some C22H29FN3O9P love wink

Hi Kit,

Sorry, but we can`t allow these links here so I have removed them.  It would be irresponsible for us to promote the sale or purchase of any medical drugs on this forum, and these generic Sovaldi products are from an unknown and unproven source.

Thanks anyway, I`m sure you posted them with all good intentions and we do appreciate that.  ~ Jill

Hi Everyone,

I have to mention that the Forum Administration does not endorse the sale of or allow the advertising of any generic pharmaceutical product. Please be cautious when considering any generic drug coming from unproven sources. Any advertisement of those facilities will have to be removed. Thank you for your understanding.

Tig

Tnx Kiten,

can anyone, if there is anyone, from Egypt confirm these products are in use in Egypt? I thought Egypt received discount on genuine Sovaldi, not volume licensing generics?

MPI Viropack (Sofosbuvir 400mg), pops up on questionable websites as import from Egypt. 630$ per bottle.

Anyone from Russia that has maybe already obtained these egyptian products? Any verification on content?

cheers!
