On April 16th 2013, the US FDA has given approval to the echosens fibroscan device. This will open up fibrosis and treatment monitoring for US liver disease patients and improve the decision making tools for the treating hepatologist.
Hey guys, well if we keep exposing US health care corruption maybe we will have many more HBV treatments approved.
I mean who knows maybe Replicor may even decide to offer treatment course of their medication + immune modulator. Lets hope these people are human after all and are not only thinking of making money at all costs..
It still is strange though to think that.. Why a doctor or a hospital needs FDA approval to treat people with forward thinking treatments that save lives?
With what is available today, they should really be treating us with gene therapy, or growing our own livers for replacement..
but anyway, yes it is a great news finally Fibroscan made it to the USA. I know I want to do this test, never had it done..
I think they had good reasons to hold back. For one thing its FRENCH and every single thing costs thousands of euros. Americans aren't use to pay for every single thing that comes as an option, if they pay for something they get it all as bundle.
Talked to my Fibroscan doctor and a stupid VGA interface for Fibroscan costs more than a 1000euro.
not at all.it is wide accepted US fda is corrupted to the bone by testimony of people who was in the fda commissions (when not corrupted receiving tips for family members and sons life probability.........)
they could not simply act like they are on mars, it is surprising they are more than a decade (almost 13 years late) behind the rest of the world on both hbsag quant and fibroscan which are essential tests to monitor infection status
