Gilead says a net­work of sup­pli­ers and dis­trib­u­tors sold tens of thou­sands of fake ver­sions of its HIV meds

Gilead has ac­cused a net­work of unau­tho­rized drug sup­pli­ers and dis­trib­u­tors of sell­ing coun­ter­feit ver­sions of its HIV meds, some of which end­ed up in US phar­ma­cies, ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments un­sealed Tues­day.

Over the last two years, Gilead says the dis­trib­u­tor de­fen­dants sold 85,246 bot­tles of Gilead meds (in­clud­ing its HIV meds Bik­tarvy and De­scovy) with coun­ter­feit doc­u­men­ta­tion — some of which had tam­pered bot­tles, or con­tained an en­tire­ly dif­fer­ent drug.
