Perspectives: Drug Companies’ Ad Campaign Won’t Reverse ‘Justly Deserved’ Reputation

Read recent commentaries about drug-cost issues.

Stat: Drug Industry Ad Campaign May Be Too Late To Save Its Reputation
The pharmaceutical industry wants you to know that it’s not “getting away with murder. ”That was the accusation leveled by President Trump two weeks ago, and it stunned industry executives, who were already on the defensive after sustained and increasingly harsh criticism of drug prices that has lowered their reputation among consumers and politicians. (Ed Silverman, 1/23)

Chicago Tribune: Trump Vs. Big Pharma: The Cost Of Cheaper Drugs
President Donald Trump recently took a swat at one of his favorite pinatas, Big Pharma, vowing to revamp federal rules for buying prescription drugs. “They’re getting away with murder,” he said of drugmakers. “Pharma has a lot of lobbyists and a lot of power and there is very little bidding.

Forbes: The Future of Pharma In The Age Of Trump

It’s no time to panic; J&J’s CFO chalked the guidance disappointment up to foreign-exchange issues. But the warning highlights how hard it is for a company of J&J’s size to generate growth and why it is considering a big, complicated deal for Swiss biotech Actelion Ltd. (Max Nisen, 1/24)

Salon: Free Market For Drugs? It Won’t Work, But Here’s What Might
The United States faces a major problem with prescription drug prices. Even as the prices of most goods and services have barely budged in recent years, the cost of drugs has surged. During the presidential campaign, both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump cited the high
