    This is an article that tackles head-on, the widely missed issue of the new drugs not working on certain genotypes of the disease. (Genotype 3, the one I have), does not respond to the new drugs). This is the type of information that saves lives, because my first GI doctor did not inform me of all I needed to know in my first 2 attempts at treatment. Thank you!

    Hi Jessica,
    Just stopping by to say how very much I like the title you’ve chosen for your blog, and how impressed I am on the articles I’ve just lingered on.
    Best,

    Hi Jessica,
    I read your article on Patient Assiatance Programs and how it is profitable to drug companies and found it very clear and concise.Interestingly, I am working on a project for one of our pharmaceutical clients on the Patient Assistance Programs in Canada.
    With respect to this, I would like to discuss about the industry trends, how Patient Assistance Programs work in Canada and its relevance, the top few suppliers, etc.
    Kindly suggest me your best time along with your contact details for a short conversation (10-15 minutes) and I will be very happy to reach you.
    Many thanks, in advance!
    Kind Regards,
    Sayantan Das.
