Politicians on both sides of the aisle have found a common enemy: exorbitant drug prices.
But how much of this notion holds water?
University of Maryland, Eastern Shore Professor of Pharmacy Administration Robert Freeman says the idea that “drug prices are out of control is widely held but factually incorrect.”
As U.S. legislators focus on dropping prices through regulation, the move could be to the detriment of drug research, and risk keeping from patients new, life-saving treatments.
