Today is a historic day and a landmark moment for patients with diabetes and other serious medical conditions, as insulin and certain other biologic drugs transition to a different regulatory pathway. @US_FDA #insulin #HHS More:
Today, insulin and certain other biologic drugs gain a new regulatory pathway to increased competition for the first time: .
It is a horror beyond words that Shane Patrick Boyle died because he fell $50 short of raising the money he needed for insulin. Insulin was discovered in 1923 and was sold for $1. No one should beg, ration, go bankrupt, or die over it. This is why we are taking on Big Pharma.
Insulin costs 10 times more in the U.S. than in Canada. For the same damn product made by the same damn company, Americans are charged 10 times more. We are going to end that thievery in this country.
The inventors of insulin sold the patent for $1. A vial costs $6 to make. Drugmakers sell it for $300 a vial in the United States. That level of greed is scandalous, it is outrageous, and when we win it is going to end.
