    if she was enrolled in a clinical trial, treatment would've been free.

    Wasn't there a blind item not too long ago about a female that was going to come out and say she was cured from her disease because she never really had it in the first place? There was some reason given in the blind why she decided to go the cure route but I can't remember. One of the popular guesses was Yolanda from RHOBH. I can't remember if Pamela was guessed or not.

    Does this ring a bell for anyone?

    Yikes, she looks dreadful! Horrible makeup and even more horrible hair. We're in for some fun looks as she gets older.

    Didn't Naomi Judd also get Hepatitis C and then years later announce that she was cured?

    Faster, Cheaper Hep C Cures on the Horizon?By Brenda Goodman, MA
    WebMD Health News Reviewed by Arefa Cassoobhoy, MD, MPH


    Nov. 10, 2015 -- In an ecstatic post to her Instagram followers yesterday, Pamela Anderson revealed that she’s been cured of hepatitis C.
    She’s short on specifics, but tells other people who are infected not to lose hope and promises that the cure she got “will be more available soon.”
    Is she right?
    To find out, we reached out to Raymond Schinazi, PhD. He’s the director of the Laboratory of Biochemical Pharmacology at Emory University in Atlanta.
    Schinazi has had a hand in developing five lifesaving antiviral drugs, including sofosbuvir (Sovaldi), one of several new treatments that can wipe out hepatitis C infections in nearly everybody who takes them. (He reportedly made $440 million when he sold the rights to that drug to the pharmaceutical company Gilead.)


    Now Schinazi says he’s figured out a way to shrink the treatment time for some hep C patients from 12 to 3 weeks. Most importantly, the shorter regimen, which relies on a combination of three drugs instead of two, could cut the cost of a cure by 60%.
    Right now, the two-drug combo Harvoni -- a combination of sofosbuvir and another antiviral drug called ledipasvir, which was approved by the FDA last year -- costs $1,125 per pill. People take it for about 12 weeks, bringing the total tab for treatment to $94,500. That puts hope of a cure out of reach for many.
    Schinazi didn’t say which drugs were in the experimental treatment, but he says they each work in a slightly different way to keep the virus from being able to copy itself.
    “These are three of the most potent drugs available. You put them all together and you blow the virus away, basically. It has no way to escape,” he says.

    Friend of mine has also had the experimental treatment. Success for him too. Still needs to be careful and follow a strict diet to repair his liver, but he is so, so relieved that he's over the worst.

    It seems those "cured" are taking part in studies that are free to them. We won't know the cost until the drugs pass FDA testing and are approved for sale.

    We've got a couple of Hep C cures in Canada. Each cycle costs $60,000 - $75,000, and a person can require one to three cycles of treatment. Our provincial government is currently picking up a lot of the costs for this, but of course our medical system is structured completely differently, and although $150,000 to $225,000 is a huge expense, the affected people probably already cost more in terms of care that the system currently picks up.

    In Australia this would be free or a fraction of the cost...the healthcare system here is amazing. And the poorer you are the more you get looked after..I almost feel bad for you all.

    ie with a healthcare card...a ambulance trip costs not a cent..you can stay weeks in hospital..costs nothing....this country is good.
