About The Study: In this cross-sectional study of 60 new therapeutic agents approved by the Food and Drug Administration from 2009 to 2018, there was no association between estimated research and development investments and treatment costs based on list prices at the launch of the product or based on net prices a year after launch. Findings of this study suggest drug companies should make further data available if they want to use this argument to justify high prices.
