How much does it cost to develop a cancer drug?
A new analysis finds the magic number is $648 million, which is substantially less than an earlier — albeit controversial — estimate of $2.6 billion for the cost to develop any and all new medicines, in general.
Never asked for it. It’s annoying!
Patient cost of monthly Zytiga = $100,000 per year.
Cost to produce $648,000,000. Query: How much of this “cost” is Government (taxpayer) funds ? Whatever amount alters my calculations !!?
Number of yearly patients until all costs recouped: 6,480 !!!
AND, the Pharmaceutical Industry cries “lack of profitability” ?
Personally, I find this UNCONSCIONABLE!!!!!!
