"big money in a drug", "big money to promote it".
Well, evidently that just means huge monetary investments getting spent commercially in launching & marketing both new & existing pharmaceutical drugs.
Next, while the monetary returns on such commercial investments would undoubtedly & ultimately depend on & come substantially from the fees-paying patients who just turn out to be the end users of these big-moneyed drugs whereby the bigger and the greater the sales of such drugs to the fees-paying patients, the greater and the bigger would be the return on the monetary investments of these big-moneyed drugs, and that's the so-called the goal of commercial / moneyed-interests profit-maximization.
And obviously,that's definitely viewed solely from the standpoints of the moneyed-interests motivations & definitely nothing else whereby everything is considered based purely on the impersonal profit & loss accounts of these big-moneyed drugs investors, which could include the developers, manufacturers, distributors and the medical personnel themselves.
Next, reasonably anyone would agree that, at least on any / mere and the very basic ethical grounds & under any circumstances, the fees-paying patients' welfare, well-beings, health cares & eventually their very lives simply shouldn't be sacrificed for such purely self-serving profit-oriented moneyed-interests "medical pursuits"
Well, all in all, it all would just come down eventually to the very simple principle & direct reality that fees-paying patients paying medical fees / monies to the fees-seeking doctors are undoubtedly to get themselves healed, treated & cured eventually rather than making things worse in the end
And it's simply all common senses at least for the fees-paying patients.....
