Cancer drugs routinely thrown out, wasting millions of dollars per year: study

The health-care system is wasting millions of dollars by buying cancer medications that are thrown out because of the way they are packaged by drug makers — in one-size-fits-all vials that hold too much for most patients, a study found. The waste costs as much as $102 million over a three-year period, according to the study published two years ago in the medical journal Cancer.
