PBS NewsHour Weekend

Episode #165

On Saturday, we look at a revolutionary class of drugs called "biologics." Americans have been paying more for their benefits than patients in Europe or Asia because the "generic" versions or "biosimilars" have not hit the U.S. market. Dr. Emily Senay looks into why there's a delay and when American consumers can expect discounts. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
