Make sense?


For my wet-form macular degeneration, I receive injections of Avastin in my eye every five or six weeks. This is an off-label treatment for MD and costs about $50 per shot. A single injection of the FDA approved drug, Lucentis costs $2000, even though both are made by the same company, and Avastin has proven in trials to be just as effective as Lucentis.

Does this make sense to you?
