Somewhere on this ball we call "Earth"

"Prescription drug manager Express Scripts Holding Co. plans to make it easier for patients to get a cheap alternative to Turing pharmaceuticals’ price-boosted drug, Daraprim.

Express Scripts, which manages prescription for tens of millions of Americans, will promote the use of the $1 per pill alternative to Turing’s $750 per pill drug, potentially sparing tens of thousands of dollars in treatment costs per patient. That cheap alternative is already being made and sold by Imprimis Pharmaceuticals in San Diego.

In a press release, Steve Miller, senior vice president and chief medical officer of Express Scripts, said that "leveraging our expertise to improve access and affordability to an important medication is the right thing to do..."

The move comes amid an intense uproar of anger towards Turing, which raised the cost of Daraprim by more than 5,000 percent in September. The company became the poster-child for pharmaceutical price gouging." (More)
