hi doc, thanks for ur reply. u mentioned for triple therapy the cost is $60,000. what would be an approx cost for double therapy? ragards and happy new year in advance.

Response from Dr. McGovern

Current costs are about $28,000 whereas the addition of a protease inhibitor brings the cost to about $50,000-$70,000...

These are very rough estimates, but you can see that the addition of a protease inhibitor significantly increases cost. However, the cure rates are so much higher so many more patients benefit in the end.
