Game-Changing Hep C Pill Closer to Approval

In this video, health-care analyst David Williamson discusses two cutting-edge but very different hepatitis C drug candidates under FDA review. A little less than a month ago, Johnson & Johnson received priority status for its simeprevir, shortening its decision time by four months.
