Drug prices to treat multiple sclerosis soar, point to larger problem

(Oregon State University) A study released today found that drugs used to treat multiple sclerosis have soared in price in the past two decades, in some cases more than 700 percent, even though newer drugs have come to the market — a process that normally should have stabilized or reduced the cost of at least the older medications. The findings point to a systemic problem in the US pharmaceutical industry that leads to enormous, uncontrolled and rapidly increasing prices for some types of drugs. (Source: EurekAlert! – Cancer)
