Trump gives crony corporation exclusive patent rights to potential C-virus cure

https://theintercept.com/2020/03/23/...bhgXip2xXMG-24

God forgive me for saying this but Jesus H. Tap-Dancing Chist! What the Actual FRAK?!?

Is there no end to this depraved man's venality and criminality?

Quote:
The distinction could severely limit supply of remdesivir by granting Gilead Sciences exclusive protection over the drug and complete control of its price. Other pharmaceutical firms, including India-based pharmaceutical firm Cipla, are reportedly working toward a generic form of remdesivir, but patients in the U.S. could be prevented from buying generics with lower prices now that Gilead Sciences’s drug has been designated an orphan.

Today, Gilead abruptly announced that it would no longer provide emergency access to remdesivir, telling the New York Times that “overwhelming demand” left it unable to process requests for the drug through its compassionate use program. Hours later, the FDA gave the drug orphan status. Almost immediately, Gilead’s stock price shot up. Gilead did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The White House, on behalf of Grogan, declined to comment on the record.

The special orphan designation, which can also be granted to drugs when there is little reasonable expectation that a company will recoup its research costs, was given to remdesivir despite hefty support by the government for the development of the drug.

Gilead Sciences’ remdesivir was developed with at least $79 million in U.S. government funding, according to a paper published last week by KEI. The origins of the drug came after the 2014 Ebola outbreak in western Africa, which spurred research into potential antiviral medications to control future potential pandemics. Early promising results from the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Disease revealed that Rhesus monkeys infected with Ebola survived after undergoing an antiviral treatment using GS-5734, the compound now known as remdesivir.

The U.S. National Institute Allergies and Infectious Diseases continued providing significant taxpayer funding to subsidize the development of remdesivir. NIAID grants to Columbia University, Vanderbilt University, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and the University of Alabama subsequently found that remdesivir prevents virus replication in a range of coronaviruses in human lung cells.

The designation allows the pharmaceutical company to profit exclusively for seven years from the product, which is one of dozens being tested as a possible treatment for Covid-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus.
What the FDA gives they can take away?

Not how it works. Even if this drug is one of many, Gilead holds the exclusive patent. And you can bet your last penny that the other drug makers will demand the same treatment for their drugs.

And then there's Trump trying a hostile buyout of the German's research to privatize it...

Your quote does not mention Trump even once. This sorta reeks of malfeasance but Trump isn't mentioned. Yet another display of manipulated data by the OP to form outrage inducing fake news in the minds of those who might be gullible enough. His fault is at best indirect unless you have something better to quote.

Who appointed the current FDA commisioner? Trump. EVERY action taken so long as he is in office is ON HIM.

In a surprising turnabout, drugmaker Gilead Sciences asked the Food and Drug administration on Wednesday to rescind orphan status for remdesivir, the company's experimental coronavirus treatment.

The agency granted this status to remdesivir on Monday, prompting a backlash from public health and consumer advocates. Orphan drug designation is intended to spur development of drugs for rare diseases by bestowing drugmakers with tax breaks, FDA fee waivers and seven years without generic competitors.

Although this isn't the first time a company has asked for an orphan designation to be rescinded, it's rare, says James Love, director of Knowledge Ecology International, a non-profit public interest group.

"Gilead must have been feeling the heat," Love says. "I think it's embarrassing to take something that's potentially the most widespread disease in the history of the pharmaceutical industry and claim it's a rare disease."

Not in the quote, but he is in the 2nd paragraph of the linked article. Not that it claims he was directly behind it, but he is mentioned.

In today's lesson, the world does not play by **YOUR** rules.... The quoted article mentions Trump not even once. The OP is manipulating facts to provide the fuel for the daily outrage.

Dude, these posts were literally right next to each other. Maybe take a break on the "manipulation" in a "disingenuous way" for, like, a few posts?

I beg to differ sir, the outrage should actually change to smug satisfaction at this point.

Mission accomplished. The public spoke and got the results it wanted, which is what 'Murica was built on. hashtag murica

A big enough part, and that's what matters. This is a ridiculous hair to split, though not shocked it's being split by you.

The part that matters got heard, and the reason they matter is because they got heard, and got the results that are best for the American people.

The answer is yes, but not at Trump, rather at the FDA and Gilead Sciences for exploiting a loophole so that they can profiteer during a crisis.

It's not the first time that Gilead has been involved in controversy over outrageous profiteering.

They do seem to have caved to the public outcry and dropped their claim to being able to declare COVID-19 a "rare disease" though, so you know what, sometimes that outrage works.

More amused that somebody who probably gets most of his news From "FoxNews" talks about "manipulation" and being "disingenuous".

Anyone who is not outraged by the illegal, immoral, and treacherous acts by this "administration" is part of the problem. Americans have not been outraged ENOUGH.

Have you given money to the Biden campaign? How about PACs running negative ads on Trump? Volunteered for get out the vote efforts? Working on a Senate campaign? If Americans want their country back from the Trumptrash, the time for outrage is over.
