The Truth About Drug Companies


Recommended Posts

I just finished listening to an interview with the author of this book. I know at least one member on the board who is employed by a drug company--and realize that this member is not responsible for drug companies and their policies. Anyway it was an interesting interview--the author was the long time editor of the New England Journal of Medicine. One of the things that I had wondered about was why are there so many copycat drugs--I don't mean generics, but drugs that basically do the same thing as other drugs--with some slight variations--why is this so when, especially in the case of cancer drugs, we need something that is curative and not just something that might prolong life another couple of weeks longer than what is available? Anyway, this book addresses that, plus more!
