interferon is the oldest hbv drug and the first to be available for the cure of hbv in the '80, today is still the only drug to cure hbv

there are many formulas, interferon alpha is genric today because the oldest, peginterferon is also about to become generic because also this type is old, i believe it was approved around 2000

interferon is very expensive but generics are available in india and vietnam which are much cheaper.interferons are immune boosting drugs used for hbv, hcv, some cancers and i guess available everywhere

Thanks for the reply. i am deeply grateful. The generic brands that are readily available in india & vietnam are not as readily available in Nigeria where i live and if available at all, the price will be suffocate an average patient. Somebody mentioned that a weekly dose costs about N96000($600/week) and for a total course of 96 weeks, the cumulative cost will be unbearable for many

Can i get it cheaper at your end. Any link

health insurance policy in my country is still evolving and not yet available to everyone. A substantial number of patients still purchase their drugs over-the-counter. How do i get this asian generic? Any known link

it is difficult you may try pharmacies in your country to order generics from india, online pharmacies, friends in india to send the drugs
