Comment on T-1249
Feb 10, 2004
I am a little disappointed to hear that Trimeris is discontinuing its development of T-1249. Supposedly this drug would be effective against resistent virus to T-20. From what I understand their reason is simply because T-20 has failed to generate alot of sales/profits. It just seems that if a product is known to benefit sick people they shold be forced to produce it. My question is... What can I do to fight against unjustices such as this.
Response from Dr. Wohl
Thanks for sharing your concern with us. The company states that they had hoped that T-1249 would be administered less frequently than it is but that has not worked out. There are also issues with production.
I suggest you ask them about these statements and express your dissatisfaction by writing or emailing Roche, the parent company. Find the addresses relevant to where you live at www.roche.com.
