Only Gilead is allowed to sell remdesivir in the US. There are no generics, and Gilead has no competition.
Remdesiver patent belongs to the citizens of the USA who paid to research it! America needs to buy generic Remdesivir like the rest of the world can.
“Remdesivir was developed with an estimated $70 million in federal funding, and Gilead relied on key scientific contributions from government scientists,” the congresswomen wrote.
Several companies make generic remdesivir, including Beximco Pharmaceuticals in Bangladesh.
Kabir, the physician in Bangladesh, said his hospital has had plenty of remdesivir because they’re purchasing generic versions of the drug.
Doctors from other developing countries said their hospitals are also using generics.
“We have enough remdesivir in our country,” said Dr. Bilal Aziz, an assistant professor of medicine at King Edward Medical University in Lahore, Pakistan.“We don’t have any shortages,” said Dr. Endymion Tan, an infectious disease specialist at Metropolitan Medical Center in Manila in the Philippines.
