What about people staying outside the US? will they also be compensated ?
Not entirely sure what this has to do with HCV but I heard a story on NPR about this over the summer. It seemed the risk is for those who are already at risk rather than your Average Joe with no history of a cardiovascular event.
The increase in risk is about 16 to 20 percent, depending on the particular drug involved," Shah says.
Assuming that link holds up, and the risk is spread evenly throughout the population, someone with a low risk of heart attack doesn't have much to worry about. "If your risk of a cardiovascular event or a heart attack is one in a million, now it is 1.2 in a million," Shah says.

This has to do with many of us having been or are currently on opremazole (Prilosec) As you may know, those of us with cirrhosis often suffer from nausea and can't eat. Doctors prescribe this for nausea. I thought it was a given that everyone would know that. There have been discussions and concerns about this medicine in the recent past.
Sorry I posted it. Every time I post I get a lot of grief. This is on topic and of concern to many Heppers who take this medicine.
I guess. Call and check with them.
