The Headline Says It All

“Bird Flu Virus That Is Drug-Resistant Is Found in Vietnamese Girl”
Washington Post

 

In other drug developments:

 

The Philippine Department of Health has urged local drug manufacturers to try to make their own versions of Tamiflu. “[Health Undersecretary Alex] Padilla said the Bureau of Food and Drugs would issue a certificate of product registration authorizing the sale of a locally produced vaccine in the Philippine market. ‘It’s up to (Roche) to file a complaint.’”

 

Sanofi-Pasteur is to begin clinical trials in (northern) spring 2006 of its vaccine.

Two bloggers, Stephen Gordon and Andrew Sullivan, call for Roche to be forced to allow generic production of Tamiflu. Says Sullivan: "We have no time to waste."
