Egyptian market early next month, Health Minister Adel al-Adawy
A 30,000-dose shipment of Olisio, the new treatment, has arrived in
Egypt, and is currently undergoing tests before release on the market,
the head of National Committee for the Control of Viral Hepatitis Waheed

Doss added that once Olisio is approved, the treatment protocol will
be changed and the new drug will be used simultaneously with the
currently-used American-made Sovaldi.
