    Price war starting in prostate cancer drugs

    Europe has recently cut the price of Zytiga by 75 %.

    • Absolute BS. NICE, the British agency which approves drugs for use on the National Health Service, last February asked for and received a discounted price on Zytiga, probably in the area of a 20% reduction in the standard price of $4,800 per month. Which is reminscient of the old joke about the kid who, when picking up an $18 prescription, passes the pharmacist a folded up bill. When he unfolds the bill, he sees that it's not a 20, but a 5 dollar bill. The kid is running out the door and the pharmacist calls after him, "Don't run kid - I still made 4 bucks!"
