I will try to explain the essence of the question, I suffer from Hepatitis B in severe form with delta, once again when I was at the pharmacy and bought my medicines, I asked casually if there was anything new in this area, the pharmacist said that there is such a medicine, one tablet and that's it, only it costs more than $ 100,000, but the most important thing that she did not say the name, maybe someone knows, please tell me what kind of medicine it is, I understand that it is not freely available, but please tell me the name. Or if you know where I can turn for information?

Hi Anonymous754, I think this should help... ____________________________ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9688382/ "Treatment of Chronic Hepatitis D with Bulevirtide—A Fight against Two Foes—An Update" "...In summer 2020, the first potentially effective drug Bulevirtide (BLV) has been approved for the treatment of HDV by the EMA. BLV is a synthetic N-acylated pre-S1 lipopeptide that blocks the binding of HBsAg-enveloped particles to the sodium taurocholate co-transporting polypeptide (NTCP), which is the cell entry receptor for both HBV and HDV. In this review, we discuss the available data from the ongoing clinical trials and from “real world series”. Clinical trials and real-world experiences demonstrated that BLV 2 mg administered for 24 or 48 weeks as monotherapy or combined with pegIFNα reduces HDV viremia and normalizes ALT levels in a large proportion of patients. The combination of BLV and pegIFNα shows a synergistic on-treatment effect compared with either one of the monotherapies. Keywords: treatment hepatitis D, hepatitis B, bulevirtide, interferon-alfa".... ..."To date, no pharmacological therapy is able to cure chronic hepatitis D. Treatment with interferon [5] or pegylated interferon alpha (PEGIFN) [6,7] achieves the sustained suppression of HDV replication in only 25% of patients [8]. Nucleos(t)ide analogs used for the treatment of HBV do not have antiviral activity against HDV [5]. Therefore, novel HDV therapies are urgently needed. **************************************** Bulevirtide (BLV) is a synthetic N-acylated pre-S1 lipopeptide that blocks the binding of HBsAg-enveloped particles to the sodium taurocholate co-transporting polypeptide (NTCP), which is the cell entry receptor for both HBV and HDV". **************************************** ________________________________________________________________________________ It doesn't cost 100 Thousand, though. More like, 8-10 Thou (depending on which country you're in). (Pharmacist must be dyslexic or short-sighted or something..saw a nought that wasn't there.) You might have to read it three or more times to filter out the 'medical gobbledeegook', but, it'll start to make sense, suddenly.
