Title: Extortionate drug pricing.
Post by: Roger on September 23, 2015, 07:09:22 AM
Turing Pharmaceuticals in the USA recently acquired the rights to 'Daraprim', an important drug for people with toxoplasmosis. MD Martin Skreli, erstwhile hedge fund trader, then increased the price from £13.50 to $750 !
Protests from around the World.
Although now out of Patent, apparently generic producers will find it hard to replicate Daraprim with appropriate approvals. A terrible situation for Patients worldwide.
