Balancing act: Patient access and innovation

The Weekly BioSpace News Podcast

This week Lori, Greg and Tyler discuss ⁠drug pricing reforms⁠. CMS sent offers to manufacturers of the 10 drugs that have been selected for Medicare price negotiations. What's the best way forward that benefits patients while still supporting the innovation that makes these drugs possible? How will the election impact negotiations?

Also discussed earnings including ⁠Novo Nordisk⁠, who beat analyst expectations largely due to sales of Ozempic and Wegovy, ⁠AbbVie⁠, ⁠Merck⁠, and ⁠GSK⁠.
