In his recent article, It's Official! Curing Patients Is Bad for Business, pharmaceutical consultant Milton Packer MD says "Pharmaceutical companies are developing new drugs in only two therapeutic areas these days — cancer and rare diseases. Why? These are the only therapeutic areas where exorbitant pricing is tolerated by payers."
