How much profit does a #cancer drug need to make to continue the historic level on innovation?

Here is a #finance method using historical data. $XBI $IBB
Insight: method of financing is irrelevant in a costless/taxless world. That is all methods raising capital to support the necessary R&D should come to the same result.

Debt, equity, or other are all acceptable.
Other, you ask? Well, once a drug reaches clinical development, ie p1,2,3 trials, the compound's financial performance behaves very much like a call option.

Well so this is an interesting thread and since it touches on #biotech I did want to mention a few things 1/

I will now proceed to go on a #tweetrant / #tweetorial with regards to #Pharmaceutical #biotech pricing (focus on #cancer).

Lets look at the problem from the @PhRMA / business perspective. And lets suppose you are a wonderful company, started by wonderful people who just want to make the world a better place (I know, not real, but stay with me for a minute).
You start with a great idea / or pipeline platform and start selling this concept to #VC #VentureCapital, and lets assume that this is actually a really good idea. What is the needed return on investment to make this worth while. A: further R&D must exceed the cost of capital.

I was born & raised in #Medellin Colombia, an amazing & vibrant city in the middle of the mountains.

Please do not mention #Narcos or #Escobar when you hear Medellin!

Went to a great school in #medellin & at 17 started #medicine not because I wanted to be a clinician but because I liked the #science & my family and #mentors told me #medicine was broader and could open more doors for me #VoicesIWS #Thread☝️@IWS_Network
