Tenured Radical Hatches Anti-Capitalist Conspiracy.

An October 2015 email to Turing Pharmaceuticals from a University of North Carolina professor.

Given your company’s recent move to raise the price of pyrimethamine over 5,000% to an incredible $750 a pill, I have decided not to meet with representatives from Turing. … I am also urging my colleagues here at UNC, as well as at Duke, ECU, Wake Forest and other clinical centers across our state to do likewise, until Turing announces a reasonable and ethical reduction in the price of this important medication — a drug we rely on most to treat toxoplasmosis.


UD thanks dmf.

    This seems like a reasonable response. I won’t use textbooks from several publishers because of their outrageous pricing, and I always let the reps know this is the reason.

    tp: Yup. Though you can always assign other books. Turing has this guy by the balls.
