    You've quickly established yourself as the most ignorant and worst poster on this board. And the football board, which is quite an accomplishment. Have a great day and I'm sure your friends and family are looking forward to hearing your insight on pharmaceutical development and pricing... just remember - don't do the research, just explain it to them based on your reasoning...

    As you can tell, I’m EXTREMELY concerned with gaining the approval of OTB posters and blowing them away with my top notch research!!! Next stop, Pulitzer!!

    I would wager that almost any other regular poster knows more than you do about this subject. It has been argued before. I worked in pharmaceuticals for about 12 years. People have different opinions, but you’re just making a fool of yourself with a little help from Galt.

    Well, I won’t be swayed by just you all’s word on it, that’s for sure. Links from reputable sources (ie, not the alt-right) help. But I’m not going to spend any effort researching, so I don’t expect anyone here to either!

    Also note that JG never actually said a single thing on drug pricing. It’s the dirt buried under the rug.

    Humira is a complex biologic for rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn's and other complex diseases. It's the highest selling drug on the market at well over $15 billion per year.

    You could’ve well just cited Viagra.


    Nevertheless, the more important point overall, and the specific focus of this thread, is the unfair pricing of drugs. You quoted revenue of a drug but not its price, which is telling.

    Big pharma, in cahoots with big health insurance, are shielding people from the true price of drugs, unless you’re unlucky enough for the drug not to be covered or you get dropped, and bilking the economy for profit. Anything putting an end to that, is a good thing!
    Help us out. You can pick any one of the following drugs and let us know what the appropriate pricing would be: Abraxane, Symdeko, or Lipitor.

    Moderna has raised something like $2.5B and they’re only in phase 2 trials. In a few years or longer if one if the drugs makes it to market I’d guess that none of their investors are looking for a return of their investment.

    Default Having been part of the acquisition process...

    Big pharma is in constant search for labs that come up with novel compounds to license or buy the rights to in total. NIH funded labs are a great source of new compound discovery.
    You can call me Shirley. The "S" has to stand for something!

    If you don't mind me asking, what part of pharmaceuticals did you work in?
