On the state of the drug industry, it is worse than you can image, see http://healthfully.org/rc/id1.htmlt and http://healthfully.org/rc/id9.html for confirmation. The cause is the corporate takeover of government which became blatant under Reagan for the Republicans and under Clinton (1992) for the Democrats.

There is an alarming laxity in the production of research, education of public and doctors, and standards of FDA approval for drugs, as well as the monitoring of safety and effectiveness of drugs.  A link to 2 chapters of the best book on how big PHARMA deceives us and much more by Doctor Marcia Angell (Harvard Professor and former editor of New England Journal of Medicine)

http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/f.php?f=index  over 2 dozen major journals available for free on line

JK’s wish list

 

1).  Long-term independent monitoring of side effects by independent researchers. Easily done thought available data banks of Veterans Administration, Kaiser Permanente, and Medicare.  Such studies cost about 1/1,000th that of a long-term clinical trial.

2). Require reporting of side effects with incentives and penalties administered through a university panel of professors.   

3).  Prompt follow-up on important side effects by independent researchers. 

4).  Permit only independent university medical colleges to run clinical trials and the drug companies couldn’t select where (use random pool method).

5). The researchers/institution would exclusively own the results and their publication rights.

6)   Make readily available for free over the internet   an easy to peruse form the results of studies and reports of side effects which would include comparisons to similar drugs

7).  For FDA approval, heads on-testing (rather than being more effective than a placebo).

8).  When appropriate require that 1/4th those in clinical trial be over the age of 60. 

9).  Key positions in the FDA be filled by researchers without ties to PhARMA. 

. 

10)  Limit PhARMA activities to research for and manufacturing of drugs, and thus eliminate the sales (including advertising), lobbying, and educational activities. 

11). Forbid direct to consumer ads and ads to doctors.  The medical universities would be in charge of making decisions as to what is to be marketed and for what, like what is done with NICE in the UK. 

12).  Eliminate the ability to extend patents, and also other ways that PhARMA delays the introduction of generic drugs.

13).  Eliminate funding of the FDA from PhARMA for the approval of new drugs, since this provides for the FDA an incentive to approve drugs, even ones not worth taking. 

14)  Side effects would have on package and insert a quantification of side effects in legible size print. 

15)  Require independent accounting of PhARMA companies books, and make it public.

16). Fund from profits on drugs a grant system for university medical basic research. 

17). Establish as measure of a drug a profit and distribution system based only upon service to the public weal
