Al cierre de esta nota, la pandemia de COVID-19 había superado los 10 millones de contagiados y los 500,000 casos fatales. Su solución parece lejana, aunque los esfuerzos paralelos por conseguir una vacuna y un tratamiento avanzan.

El antiviral remdesivir es uno de los medicamentos que mejor han logrado paliar los efectos de la infección por el virus SARS-CoV y su uso ya ha sido validado por las autoridades sanitarias de Estados Unidos y la Unión Europea.

La farmacéutica Gilead Sciences ha establecido en $2,340 dólares el costo del tratamiento para personas cubiertas por el seguro médico general y en $3,120 para los afiliados al sistema privado.

El director ejecutivo del laboratorio estadounidense, Dan O’Day, admitió que “estamos en un territorio desconocido poniéndole el precio a una nueva medicina para una pandemia”.

En declaraciones a la agencia AP, aseguró que “tuvimos que desviarnos de las circunstancias normales” para fijar un precio que garantizara el acceso al fármaco.

Concretamente, cada uno de los seis frascos necesarios para aliviar a un enfermo crítico costará $390 o $520 dólares, según las condiciones de cada individuo, en países desarrollados como Estados Unidos.

“Deberíamos tener suministro suficiente, pero debemos asegurarnos de que esté en el lugar correcto en el momento correcto”, añadió O’Day.

Desde Gilead Sciences aclararon que las donaciones en Estados Unidos deberían de agotarse en “aproximadamente” una semana. De ahí en adelante, se aplicarán los precios anunciados.

El gobierno federal ha asegurado con la empresa una provisión de alrededor medio millón de dosis para el suministro en los hospitales hasta septiembre.

En paralelo, Gilead ha autorizado la producción genérica del remdesivir en laboratorios de 127 países de ingresos medios y bajos a un costo cercano a los $600 dólares por tratamiento.

“El antiviral interfiere la capacidad del coronavirus de copiar su material genético”, recordó AP. Estudios recientes indican que acorta el tiempo de recuperación en 31 por ciento, de 15 a 11 días como promedio.
