Newsflash PBAC

In Australia the PBAC has voted to recommend the inclusion of sofosbuvir in the PBS. This could mean that this vital medication becomes available at affordable prices in Australia, however it's also possible Cabinet will reject this given that inclusion in the PBS could see the current $10 billion spent by the government on all PBS medications blow out to $30 billion.
