In the United States, the median price for an orphan drug is about $100,000 per year, twenty times the price of the median non-orphan drug. Given the staggering cost, you'd think we'd have a solid handle on whether that money is well-spent. But the truth is that we don't.

Friend of the show Nick Bagley, a professor of law at the University of Michigan wrote a series for our blog on orphan drugs, and it was so good, we're bringing it to you here. For the next four weeks, orphan drugs are the topic of Healthcare Triage.
