Pravachol vs. Lipitor Update
In my March 11 piece below, I mentioned the possibility of Pravachol competing on price with Lipitor. But over at Forbes, Matthew Herper has pointed out that it's currently more expensive. What BMS is going to do with this drug, I can't imagine.
There's also a good story in the Newark Star-Ledger about the whole comparative-trial situation. (That paper does a pretty good job with the drug industry, since so many of the big players are right in its back yard.)
