Default FDA protest proposal


Group to Sue Glaxo S.Africa Over AIDS Drugs
Thu Nov 13,11:05 AM ET Add Health - Reuters to My Yahoo!


By Wambui Chege

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A U.S. AIDS (news - web sites) group said on Thursday it planned to file a
class action suit against GlaxoSmithKline in South Africa seeking damages on behalf of people it
says died because they could not afford AIDS drugs.


But the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), which said it hoped to file the suit against the
subsidiary of Europe's biggest drugmaker soon, said it would drop the lawsuit threat if GSK created
a one billion rand ($150 million) fund for free AIDS drug treatment in South Africa.


South Africa has the highest number of people living with HIV (news - web sites)/AIDS in the world,
an estimated 5.3 million people, equivalent to about 12 percent of the country's 45 million
population.


"This joint action lawsuit against GSK will seek the awarding of damages by the courts to patients
or dependants who lost breadwinners to AIDS, who because of excessive pricing by GSK, were not able
to access treatment," an AHF statement said.


The move follows an investigation by South Africa's Competition Commission which found GSK and
Germany's unlisted Boehringer Ingelheim had violated the country's 1998 Competition Act by refusing
to license their patents to generic manufacturers in return for a reasonable royalty.


The Commission recommended a penalty of 10 percent of annual sales of the firm's anti-retroviral
drugs in South Africa for each year they were found to have violated the Competition Act.


The October ruling, hailed by activists, was issued as GSK announced a further price cut for its
Combivir AIDS treatment in poor countries to 65 U.S. cents a day from 90 cents.


Vicki Ehrich, spokeswoman for GSK South Africa, told Reuters the suit was based on incorrect
information, and they were in talks with the Treatment Action Campaign, a leading AIDS lobby group
which led the complaint with the competition watchdog.


"We have until November 28 to reach a settlement. Hopefully that will be concluded soon," said
Ehrich.


Michael Weinstein, president of the AHF, said that was not good enough and on Wednesday called a
news conference asking AIDS sufferers and family members who had lost relatives to the disease to
join the proposed lawsuit.


AHF will file the suit jointly with AIDS The****utic Treatment Now, South Africa. Both are partners
in a free AIDS treatment clinic in KwaZulu-Natal province.


"The weight of many of these deaths and the ongoing pain and suffering of those who cannot access
medications falls squarely on GSK," AHF said.

Hi Rev. 11D Meow! © ® , You say :
" EverClear 190 proof "

Aren't you in Seattle ? We can't buy that here .

Speaking of eleven dimensions ,
did you see my recent post on the fallacy of string theories
and other such theories of everything ?

String theory is not progress . It's regress .

Just like Gödel proved :
All TOEs will _ Always _ be incomplete ,
inconsistent , ugly , etc. .

All the same ,
I'm sure that scientific determinism
will continue to inch forward ,
exposing ever more of the material determinism
that is sure to be there ...

Because material determinism is probably absolute .

" What about the Heisenberg uncertainty principle ? "
You say ?

H.U.P. Says :
The standard deviation of the canonical momentum ,
times the standard deviation of the position ,
is always greater than , or equal to ,
Planck's constant
divided by four times Archimedes' constant ( pi ) .

And this not due to any disturbance ,
but rather due to the wavelike nature of " Particles " .

It's ****ogous to how a sound cannot have both a precise time,
as in a short pulse , and a precise frequency ,
as in a continuous pure tone .

Much of the above came from :
http://en2.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heisenberg_uncertainty_principle

I've read quite a bit of e e ***mings, but your stuff makes less than zero
sense at all to me.

Can you be a bit more clear and concise in the future?

That is if you wish to actually connect with the 'outside whirled' that is
that is that is that is that is that is that is . . .

This isn't me 11D, nor have I anything to do with it ... and I've got
you and Poop Dogg plonked. That's pretty ****ed to attack a med which
has been a life saver for me; especially with ignorance. Just because
one med doesn't work for you, does not mean it doesn't work for others.
Just as SSRI's help so many, but are awful for me.

Shame on you.
