KEI's note on the India CL contains a good description of what the TPP
provision setting damages based on retail price threatens access to
meds.

SNIP:

 

"The Bayer price in India for sorafenib was 69 thousand USD per year. A
survey of prices on sorafenib is available here:
http://keionline.org/prices/nexavar. Bayer's main defense of the pricing
was its program of discounts to lower income patients, and the fact that
CIPLA was selling an infringing product at a lower price (Bayer is suing
CIPLA, and asking for damages and injunctions)."
