Will German Regulators Dampen Gilead Hopes For Its Stribild AIDS Drug?
German regulators have issued a preliminary decision that the Gilead Sciences once-daily, combination Stribild HIV treatment does not offer a benefit over the older Atripla medication.

Drug coverage providers in the U.S. could potentially save up to $1 billion per year, said an investigative team from Harvard Medical School this past July....Read Full Post (Source: About AIDS / HIV)
