Dear All,

In an article published in the NEJM on May 12, authors from the European
Medicines Agency (EMA) et al., share their perspective on drug regulation
and high drug prices:

"*We firmly believe that assessment of quality, safety, and efficacy should
remain separate from pricing and reimbursement decisions. Regulators alone
cannot solve the growing problem of high drug prices*.”

Hope you will find this useful.
