A top drug researcher who works at Oregon Health & Science University is calling on doctors and his fellow researchers to demand that a number of American drug manufacturers lower their prices. Brian Druker says doctors should take the fight for making drug prices more reasonable to Congress in order that the drugs can get to the patients who need them. He cites examples in other countries where drug prices are far lower than they are in the U.S. because those foreign governments are committed to seeing that the drugs are available to their citizens.
