Shkreli, the CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals who jacked up the price of Daraprim (pyrimethamine), wants to do the same thing to benznidazole, one of two medications known to be effective in treating Chagas disease.
Currently it costs $60-$100 per treatment course, but he wants to increase it to $80k-$100k per treatment course.
I guess it’s time to invest in whoever makes nifurtimox (the other medication known to be effective in treating Chagas disease.)
