i think the lowest price was something like 50-100usd per month, in some asian countries gilead cut the price to 7USD per month to compete with generics, this was a press announcment and dont know if they ever cut to 7usd

There is a big demand for imported Tenofovir in China. It is still undergoing clinical trial and has yet to be approved.

just to have an idea:
breakfast in a bar with oranges juiced in front of you, cappuccino and fresh croissant is about 5euro

tenofovir in india is equal to about 3 breakfasts in a bar

23 USD for 30 day supply of Tenofovir should be affordable for more patients. How much profit   is too much? Sigh.

Thanks Stefano (your contribution to this forum is invaluable).  do you have any idea, which brand of tenofovir(among indian brands) is good

cipla and ranbaxy are sell generics worldwide so production is inspected by fda and other organs, i guess such simple chemical can be produced the same by any brand but i myself would choose cipla, ranbaxy or tavin

i guess the other indian members know which are the most reliable producers or if all the same

Ranbaxy had a pact with Gilead for Tenofovir and some Gilead technology was transfered to Ranbaxy.

Cipla refuse a pact with Gilead for Tenofovir, but the Cipla drug is accepted by the FDA.

note: seams that a lot of other company had accepted Gilead  pact

Emcure also had a old pact with Gilead for Tenofovir and I suspect that this pact also include the thehnology transfer for producing the drung
