« on: September 21, 2015, 07:37:30 pm »
"Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential frontrunner, knocked  $15bn from the value of US biotech stocks on Monday by pledging to take  on “outrageous” price-gouging in the pharmaceuticals industry.'Price gouging like this in the speciality drug market is outrageous.  Tomorrow I’ll lay out a plan to take it on,' Mrs Clinton wrote in a  tweet, referring to a company that hiked the price of a medicine for a  form of parasitic infection from $13.50 to $750 overnight."
