FDA, Big Pharma Act Quickly to Control Counterfeiting Upsurge

Executive Summary

Drug counterfeiting is on the rise--and drugs with inactive, incorrect, subpotent or superpotent ingredients are entering into the US drug supply at alarming rates. FDA commissioner Mark McClellan, MD, PhD has made it clear that identifying the best means to keep the drug supply safe is a fast-track effort at the agency. And this is not merely a top-priority regulatory effort--Big Pharma firms, fearful of safety problems--and, although they don't say so, lost sales--have lots of incentive to get involved in looking for solutions, too.
