By Kelly Mclaughlin, Daily Mail UK, 22 September 2015






Martin Shkreli, 32, founder and chief executive of Turing Pharmaceuticals, purchased the rights to Daraprim which is used for treating life-threatening parasitic infections - for $55million. He raised the price of the drug form $13.50 per tablet to $750 per tablet.


Since the announcement, people across social media have criticized the price increase, but Shkreli has backed the decision, saying that his company 'need to turn a profit on the drug'.


'This isn't the greedy drug company trying to gouge patients, it is us trying to stay in business,' Shkreli said..


He added that many patients use the drug for less than a year and that the price is on par with drugs similar that are used to treat rare diseases.
