Gilead Sciences is close to a pharma licensing deal with generic drugmakers to bring low-cost versions of its $84,000 hepatitis C drug Sovaldi to about 80 developing countries including India, Indonesia, and Pakistan.
The broad licensing deal could be completed as soon as mid-September and would allow the generic manufacturers to produce Sovaldi and an experimental pill that combines Sovaldi with another Gilead hepatitis drug.
The company plans to sell the branded Sovaldi itself in certain lower income countries, including India, at $900 for 12 weeks of therapy.
