Price Tag Panic.
This year, not only is generic drug maker IVAX gearing up to produce a generic form of Taxol in the United States, there is also talk of allowing drug imports. These include brand name drugs produced by U.S. companies but sold at heavily discounted prices in Latin America.
Drug companies say that's bad news for their well-funded research and development programs. But patients and insurance companies herald the potential price tag relief.
