NIH won't cut price of taxpayer-funded prostate cancer drug


The federal government has declined a petition to lower the price of a prostate cancer drug developed with taxpayer money. The public interest group Knowledge Ecology International petitioned the National Institutes of Health in January to reduce the $129,000-a year list price of Xtandi , made by the Japanese drugmaker Astellas Pharma.
