A Case for National Health and Rational Use of Expensive Drugs–Tarceva for example

Nice feature on NPR regarding the United Kingdom’s approach to expensive medications. There are trade-offs–toxicity, expenses, limited efficacy.

You don’t find such openness in the U.S. where unrealistic expectations, incomplete information, irrational use of funds and conflicts of interest drive utilization.
