patients, investors, regulators and administrators all have an
active interest. Everyone wants to know what makes drugs 'work'
medically and economically. Why are drugs so expensive? Is it the
drug companies or investors who demand high profits? What governs
the pharmacoeconomics? Why are so few diseases treatable?

diseases, such as Alzheimer s disease, untreatable pain,
antibiotics and more. This book carefully exposes the gap between
