Would you pay $100,000. for five more months?
Genentech says they plan to charge that much for a drug which extends the life of colon cancer patients for about five months on average. And says that it doesn't cost a lot to make the drug but it's worth it to live that much longer.
I don't have $100,000. but I'd agree with the patient who declined the medication and says it isn't worth it.
What do you think?
