World's most expensive medication

World's most expensive medication

A Japanese health ministry panel meets in Tokyo on Feb. 26, 2020, to discuss whether or not to approve production and sales in Japan of Zolgensma, a gene therapy medication used to treat spinal muscular atrophy. Later in the day, the panel endorsed the medication, already approved in the United States, which is the world's most expensive with a price tag of more than 200 million yen per treatment.
