That point would have been worth making in an article about new drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration for treating prostrate cancer.

If the drugs were sold in a free market without patent protection, they would almost certainly sell for less than $100 a month. It would have been worth noting this cost of the patent system for financing prescription drug research.
