Visit the Drug Cost Facts https://www.drugcostfacts.org/ organization page and review the comprehensive drug ecosystem. Start at the beginning (Why are drugs so expensive?), read through it, and then click on ‘Learn More’ to visit the next item (found at the bottom right of the page). The last item to review is ‘What role does private-sector R&D play compared to NIH’.
So, what did you learn? Does anything surprise you? Should governments regulate the cost of drugs? Some of you may differ in your opinions, this is fine (it’s a global debate). Just respect each other and be cognizant of what you are saying. Many of you will be reading all of this information for the first time, so your post may be more speculation than confirmatory. However, make sure you support your numbers with references AND use AT LEAST one reference NOT found on the BIO website.
