Cutting Medicine Costs

According to my research, there is a generic version of Imatinib manufactured in India which costs a dollar a tablet, as opposed to $16 – 20 a tablet for the Novartis version in the US or Europe.

As there has been no response from Orion Laboratories (of The Orion Group), and although I will call them anyway, I now need to approach an alternative manufacturer based in India.

I only hope their generic version meets the relevant licensing and certification requirements.
