I don't know how to do this question. Can someone do this question for me please.

5 A drug is only licensed for the medical conditions it was tested to treat in the
clinical trials.
Drug regulations:
• control what drugs a doctor can prescribe
• ensure doctors can prescribe a drug with confidence
• protect patients.
AMD is an eye condition that can result in very poor vision.
Doctors treat approximately 40 000 new cases of AMD each year.
Two drugs licensed to treat AMD in the UK are drug A and drug B.
In many other countries drug C is used to treat AMD. Drug C is only licensed in the
UK to treat cancer.
The cost per injection for each drug is:
• drug A £561
• drug B £800
• drug C £28
The number of injections required to treat AMD is the same for each drug.
In 2018 the High Court in the UK gave permission for drug C to be used to treat AMD.
Evaluate the decision to allow the use of drug C to treat AMD in the UK.

we can help, but we're not doing anything for you. Gather the info you have on C into it's own little mental paragraph, then compare it to A and B. Why is C different? What are the consequences of these differences? I can immediately see that C is a heck of a lot cheaper. Use that.

That is a weird question. Especially as the high court is rarely involved in medical licencing decisions so this is a very unusual case. This is biology GCSE?
