I'm curious to see how high J&J prices abiraterone after approval. I've heard chatter of a whopping $100,000-plus price tag. If J&J goes there, Dendreon will no longer wear the black hat as the prostate cancer drug pricing scoundrel.
And there's certainly recent precedent for stratospheric cancer drug pricing outside of Provenge -- Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) priced its melanoma immunotherapy Yervoy at $120,000 for a four-course treatment.
