On 11/21/2014 jubilant said: Thanks once again, Marp. This is great news! Macular Degeneration is trying to take my mothers eyesight in one eye and Diabetes is trying to take it in the other. This gives me hope that maybe they can keep her sight the remaining part of her life. She is 85 now. My mom has the dry kind of macular degeneration and has repeatedly been told that she will always have residual peripheral vision. She was diagnosed more than 25 years ago and at 92 can still see a bit. She has no central vision and when looking at someone she needs to turn her head a bit to see them.... Continue Reading

In HIV-infected people, NRTIs block an enzyme the virus uses to create more copies of itself. The new research shows the drugs also block the activ... Continue Reading

NEW YORK - Barbara Heller has an autoimmune disease called PBC. She takes the generic drug Ursodiol to prevent liver damage. "The last refill that I got for Ursodiol cost $94.50 for three months, Heller said. In August, she called for her usual three-month renewal, expecting her cost would still be under $100. Instead, it was $1,212.30. "I was upset, I didn't know what to do," she said. "I need Ursodiol every day probably for the rest of my life. Cost can't be a factor in not getting it." Some spectacular jumps in generic drug prices have been exposed in an article in the New England Journal ... Continue Reading

Not post with you any more? Ridiculous. It doesn't matter one whit who or what a person is off the boards; it is who or what they are here that determines my impressions of a poster. I may not agree with some of your postings but I've not yet seen anything that would make me think I shouldn't bother posting with you and your OP today doesn't change that one bit.
