Interesting article about the development of one of the first gene therapy drugs for a very rare genetic disorder. The drug was extremely effective with one treatment curing the disorder for a lifetime. Unfortunately the drug company decided to price that one treatment at $1,000,000. Consequently insurance companies and national health care services balked and the drug is no longer available.
