A new heart drug cuts cholesterol levels to once unthinkable lows. However, the drug comes at a high price: approximately $14,000 a year. The injectable drug, Repatha, appears to cut LDL or "bad" cholesterol to extremely low levels, more than lifestyle changes in people who had prior heart attacks or were at high risk. More than 27,000 heart patients in 49 countries were followed for two years in the largest study of its kind.
