Two formulations of tenofovir, an antiretroviral medication used primarily by patients with HIV, were simultaneously developed by Gilead Sciences, Inc in the 1990s. Although Gilead determined one formula was safer and more effective, it chose to promote the less safe Viread®, Truvada®, Atripla®, Complera® and Stribild® drugs for more than a decade before releasing the safer alternative in 2015—resulting in record profits for the drug company. Join us for a discussion of the history of this drug, the science, and case screening considerations.

Focus groups are invaluable tools for finding the key issues and weaknesses in your case before taking it into the courtroom – but they can be time-consuming and expensive to run.

At Case Plus, you’ll not only participate in three focus groups, screened and recruited by AAJ staff specifically for your case, you’ll work with an experienced faculty member who will guide you in preparing for your focus groups, asking the right questions, and analyzing the results. And, you’ll get individual instruction in shaping your case presentation using your groups’ feedback. Plus, you can bring an additional member of your trial team at no cost!
