Are Gilead, Trump officials and the NIH blocking Covid-19 treatment research on GS-441524 to allow more expensive Remdesivir to proceed ?

An open letter avialable in a PDF link further below has been sent to the FDA and Gilead by a liberal think tank and advocacy group asking ....

Why wont Gilead and the FDA promote research, or allow and encourage others to do so, into Gileads drug GS-441524 that looks superior to Gileads remdesivir drug? (Remdesivir was developed with the FDA and now promoted as a Covid-19 treatment)

Why wont Gilead license GS-441524 (even for animals despite successful animal tests with 100% cure rate for a fatal cat coronavirus) or meaningfully answer questions or allow other third party researchers outside the FDA full access to the information and files to do Covid-19 research on GS-441524?

The info has been updated in the link below

Why does it take a citizens advocacy group to get the FDA to do the right thing and investigate GS-441524

The FDA have now

“reviewed the literature and agree that this compound merits further exploration,”

This info has been around for a long time


“We are planning to independently test the therapeutic hypothesis for GS-441524 in treating SARS-CoV-2, [which causes Covid-19], and have informed our colleagues at [the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases] about our plans for preclinical studies. We expect to conduct these studies quickly and make the results available to the research community for further consideration,” the agency said in the letter

Researchers are still seeking permission from Gilead to use data on the compound that is on file with the FDA.




Below is a link to the updated story

Some say Gilead has blocked research into a potentially much cheaper and better Covid-19 treatment that Gilead also has patent rights over for financial reasons

The FDA has just accepted that the longstanding research shows the drug merits further investigation as a Covid-19 treatment and will begin to do do

The updated info is in the link immediately below


Decide for yourself


Gilead has declined to comment on The Atlantic story which is partly about

the amazing cure GS-441524 has been for a near 100% fatal coronavirus in cats and partly about

Gilead blocking research and licensing the manufacture and use of GS-441524 in cats and people as a treatment for Covid-19 and other coronaviruses.
