Hello, do you know how long Sovaldi and Ledispasvir have been on trial? I was just curious since I read they have been testing for about 7 years and that seems like along time for me.

Fred220 - Drugs are often tested for many years, although I don't know how long this one has been tested for. I've seen various averages, the most recent being that from test tube to market, drugs average 12 years of research.
