Thought provoking blog on high priced new drugs

I just read a thought provoking blog on high priced new drugs. The author, a hospital pharmacist, is faced with the issue of how her institution can afford to treat patients with a new drug that promises profound increases in quality of life, but at astronomical prices.

The blog is available at:

(Note – I am not personally endorsing or failing to endorse the Campaign for Sustainable Rx Pricing that Dr. Duty mentions in her blog.  I don’t know enough about the organization to have an opinion one way or the other.)
