    I'm struggling to find a site that gives a price, but some of the indian sites are selling them at $2768 for 450mg. Who in their right mind is going to buy this from a backstreet Indian site is beyond me, but I was just trying to get some prices for you dude. Now, the Indians are going to be charging much less than the US so if you were paying the hospital for a 450mg single dose it's probably around the $4000 mark as a rough guess.

    Your dose will probably be higher. Mine was 650mg I believe. I think it's down to your kidney functions too. Best person to speak to would be the company you're paying the cheque to he he. Here is a blog post from a lady who had her medical bill at over $20,000 - - but she had other drugs. Although the point of the post was that the carboplatin is expensive.

    I still can't believe it's actually got platinum in it.
