[News Article] The Steep cost of Life Saving Drugs

Medication Health News

ID-10057221 With many new drugs being brought to market, there has been increased talk about the pricing of many agents. Today, drugs in question include Evzio, a new naloxone auto-injector and  Sovaldi, a new antiviral for hepatitis C. These agents could save many lives, but their potential high costs could be a barrier to many of the patients of need. How should we solve this dilemma?  Should the subsidies be provided to those in need of these therapies?  What are your thoughts?

For additional information, please see the news analysis in the New York Times.
