Conference paper


In studying the evaluation of cimetidine my main interest is: what can we learn from the way the evaluation of cimetidine is being handled that will help us with the next drug to come along of this character? So although I will be talking briefly about some of the results and how economists might use them, I have also in my mind this more fundamental methodological problem in the evaluation of new technologies.
