Cancer patients will miss out as drug costs spiral out of control
Can somebody please tell me why drugs for cancer treatments cost so much? Is it because greedy drugs firms are hiking their prices to what the market will bear? If they carry on it will lead to prices "spiralling out of control" the problem as I see it is probably due to new treatments being used in combination and the combined cost of two drugs is making these lifesaving drugs unavailable to patients.
If the Pharma companies really cared about us as patients they would do something about this, but as it stands I feel they just look at us and count the dollars, I was just recently told I may be put on a new drug in March and the cost of this drug is three times my annual income! how can we as patients and our government possibly sustain this.
