T.C. Swann is a hemophiliac, someone who is subject to uncontrollable bleeding because their body doesn’t produce enough proteins needed to clot blood.
The 23-year-old’s prescription cost $33,000 for a monthly dose.
No argument: the guy is entitled to live as normal a life as possible.
But how can a drug cost this much? I know there is a huge capital investment for biotech equipment and techs to operate the equipment, etc. Researchers are certainly underpaid. Somebody has to formulate the drug.
But $400,000 a year!
How can this be?
