Drug prices: the director of the "health policy research group" writes a report on Lucentis for the HAS 

An article in the JDD mentions a rapport written by Daniel Benamouzig (CSO/CNRS), co-director of LIEPP's "health policy research group", on the drug Lucentis.

Produced by Novartis to cure Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Lucentis represents the first drug expenditure of the French health insurance, amouting to 438 millions euros in 2013. An anti-cancer drug (Avastin, produced by Roche) cost 36 times less, with similar results in the treatment of AMD. That drug does not have a licence for the treatment of AMD, because Roche refuses to apply for one. In Italy, Novartis and Roche have recently been condemned to pay a 182,5 millions euros fine for "illicit collusion".

D. Benamouzig already wrote a note on drug prices for the Commissariat Général à la Stratégie et à la Prospective in March 2014.

He is also working on projects on the national coordination of EU policy, EU aviation policy, and aspects of EU competition policy, including the ECN, national competition authorities and the institutionalisation of DG IV.
