Are generic drugs being delayed to market?
Are less-expensive generic drugs being delayed to market by so-called "pay for delay" deals between drug companies? The deals happen after generic drug companies challenge the patents on brand-name drugs. The settlements include a date that the generic drug can enter the market, and in some cases, a payment from brand company to the generic company.

The Real Deal: Generic Drug Companies Not Li
GLENVILLE -86% of Americans now take generic drugs and while those medications may be cheaper than the name brands, you're unknowingly giving up the ability to sue if you run into any unforeseen complications with the medication. Generic drug makers have to stick close to the name-brand formula and labeling and the Supreme Court has ruled because of those rules, they can't be held liable if something goes wrong. Debbie from Glenville has lasting effects from a drug reaction she suffered following a knee replacement, "I figured I'd come home and everything would be fine," she says but that's not what happened. She and her doctors say a generic pain medication she was taking caused renal failure and by the time she got back to the hospital, she was in serious condition. "At that point, I had 1,177 liters of urine throughout my body‚it was awful, I was so bloated I couldn't bend down to pick anything up, my legs ached, my ankles hurt, I couldn't do the therapy for my knee replacement," she says. After months of recovering, Debbie brought her case to a lawyer, "they said that you can't sue because it's a generic drug‚it took six months of my life away and they just say, "no, you can't do it, you can't sue," she says. Under federal law, generic drug makers are not allowed to change the safety warnings on their labels in response to new risks and side effects until after the name brand maker has done so. And then, the change needs to be approved by the FDA which creates a big window of time when patients may be taking the generic without updated health information. The FDA recently delayed a new rule that would require generic drug makers to independently update warnings after getting major pushback from the industry. The Generic Pharmaceutical Association argues the new rule would increase the prices of generic drugs and open up the generic drug makers to more liability. Debbie says she wouldn't mind paying a little extra for a little more piece of mind, "It was a nightmare and I don't want other people going through it," she says.

You Cannot Sue the Manufacturer of a Generic Drug - Cleveland Attorney Peter Brodhead Explains
You Cannot Sue the Manufacturer of a Generic Drug - Cleveland Attorney Peter Brodhead Explains http://www.spanglaw.com (877) 696-3303 Cleveland attorney Peter Brodhead talks about something that is very dangerous to the hundreds of thousands of people who take prescription drugs in this country. Every day, people take prescription drugs to cure, prevent or treat everything from a mild headache to cancer. On the market you have both a brand name drug and a generic version of the same drug which is offered a lower price point. You may be shocked to hear that if you take a generic drug you have absolutely no claim to a lawsuit if the drug is defective and caused you or your loved one harm. This is due to the fact that the generic drug has to develop and manufacture their drug in the closest possible way to the brand name drug -- they both contain the same chemical makeup. Because they have to follow the brand name drug company's formula, they are not liable for their own drugs that they produce. This was a decision upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court several times as the generic drug company has no other choice than to develop the same product and therefore they are not held responsible for your injuries.

11 Generic Manufacturers Approved to Sell Plavix as a Generic - NY Attorney Dan Burke Explains
11 Generic Manufacturers Approved to Sell Plavix as a Generic - NY Attorney Dan Burke explains more at: https://www.yourlawyer.com/defective-drug-attorneys/ Watch as attorney Dan Burke of Parker Waichman discusses how generic versions of the drug Plavix will soon be on the market. Used as a blood thinner, Plavix is a brand name drug that typically costs $200 a month for the prescription. Patients on the drug are being treated and prevented against blood clots. However, this drug has been flagged as being potentially harmful to patients. Patients and doctors are reported adverse effects such as bleeding events. Cases have been reported with patients experiencing bleeding in their lungs, stomach, and brain. So how does this affect the generic form? Well, generic form drugs are not allowed to change how the drug is made only offer it at a cheaper price. Because of this, you cannot go after the company if you are harmed by the drug as they are not responsible for the drug's faults. Sometimes trying to save money on a product does not equal to a good deal. Watch this video now to learn more.

California court exposes drug makers to additional liability
California court exposes drug makers to additional liability. A sharply divided California Supreme Court ruled Thursday that pharmaceutical companies can be held liable for warning labels on generic versions of drugs they once made even after they've sold the drugs to other companies and stopped manufacturing them. The 4-3 decision was a victory for consumer advocates, but the pharmaceutical industry had argued that such a finding would stifle innovation and lead to extraneous warnings on drugs that could deter people from using them.

Generic Drugs vs Brand Name Drugs
If you suffer a side effect from your medication, if you're taking a generic drug, you can't file a lawsuit for personal injury. Only the name brand drug company has to monitor safety and update warnings. The generic drug companies only have to be the same as the name brand drug company, and therefore they have no responsibility to consumers. About 80% of the drugs sold in the US are generic, so currently, the drug manufacturers for 80% of the US are not under requirement to look out for patient safety and update their warnings. However, the FDA is looking at passing new regulations that would change the standards for generic companies. This has been the Legal Minute, brought to you by BurgSimpson - Good Lawyers.

The Pharmaceutical Pride of West Africa
Danadams Pharmaceuticals Industry Limited is a wholly-Ghanaian owned limited liability company incorporated in Ghana. Danadams was commissioned on 8th June 2005 by then President John Kufour, who noted that the company would be strategic for Ghana in its fight against endemic diseases. From its original staff strength of fifty-two, Danadams now employs over 250 employees, and is delivering on its promise to contribute to the growth and impact of the local manufacturing pharmaceutical industry in Africa. Danadams' mission is to lead Africa for best-in-class, quality, safe and efficacious pharmaceuticals at affordable prices -- developed, manufactured, and distributed by Africans. Our core business is the production of anti-retroviral, anti-malarial, anti-tuberculosis and other quality generic pharmaceuticals used to fight opportunistic infections in HIV/AIDS patients. Danadams in particular seeks to address the problem of scarcity of anti-retroviral (ARV) drugs in Ghana and the rest of West Africa, by increasing its production of quality generic ARV drugs locally, and as from 2011, collaborating with strategic partners to develop new pediatric ARV drugs especially for the African market. Moreover, Danadams is among other West African Pharmaceutical companies selected to collectively act as catalysts to spearhead the building of the local capacity for production and distribution of ARV drugs. It is working in partnership with governmental initiatives like the Food and Drugs Board (FDB), economic regional bodies such as West African Health Organization (WAHO) under ECOWAS, and international organizations like the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and World Health Organization (WHO).

Dangerous Drugs News: Generic Drugs May Be Liable For Injuries In the Near Future
Visit http://www.rotlaw.com/lawsuits/dangerous-drugs/ for more information on dangerous drugs. The Supreme Court of the United States is hearing arguments this week in a case that could give patients injured by generic medications the right to sue. Currently, only original manufacturers can be held liable for harms caused by prescription medications. Karen Barrett of New Hampshire sued Mutual Pharmaceuticals of Philadelphia after she went blind and her skin began to fall off following her use of the generic drug Sulindac, which the company manufactures. A jury awarded her 21 million dollars. An appeals court upheld the verdict and the award. If the Supreme Court upholds the ruling of the lower courts, it would open the door for claims against generic drug manufacturers, who are by federal law required to reproduce the original design and labeling of a brand-name drug.

Should Big Pharma be Protected Against Law Suits for Unlabelled Side Effects?
In 2011 there was a US Supreme Court ruling that pharmaceutical companies making drugs during the life of their patent are liable for inadequate safety warnings on the label of the drug. In June of 2013 the same court ruled that generic drug producers were NOT liable for law suits related to adverse drug reactions not printed on the label so long as they are not purposefully being withheld. This federal law supercedes any state laws to the contrary. Of course this is a blow to patient safety as generic drug makers would no longer have incentive to monitor the safety of their products.

Generic Drug Stocks
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/investing-tips/generic-drug-stocks Generic Drug Stocks By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com. Pharmaceutical companies that make generic drugs were once a niche market. Today generic drug companies are set to bypass the makers of brand name drugs in sales value and volume according to About Money. Just a few years ago generic drug makers owned just a small slice of the pharmaceutical drug market. Today generics are a formidable segment of the industry and are on track to surpass branded drugs in sales value as well as sales volume within a few years, according to industry analysts. In the United States - where about 80 percent of all scripts written are for generics -- and traditional markets in Europe, multinational branded firms feeling losses from the patent cliff, health care reform legislation and austerity, are forming partnerships with their generic competitors to tap the expansion in generic sales. The top worldwide generic drug stocks and their 2012 generic drug sales are the following: • Teva, $10.4 billion • Mylan, $5.8 billion • Hospira, $4.1 billion • Sanofi, €1.8 billion • Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd., $2.3 billion • Aspen Pharmacare Holding Ltd., 15.3 billion rand • STADA Arzneimittel AG, €1.2 billion Teva is the clear leader and Teva wants to take over Mylan. Teva to Acquire Mylan The New York Times reports that two generic drug stocks may become one as Teva seeks to acquire its rival Mylan. The deal making reached a fevered pitch on Tuesday when Teva, an Israeli maker of generic drugs, made an unsolicited $40 billion offer for Mylan, a rival based in the Netherlands. Getting bigger gives you better pricing and better leverage and also gets you into more markets.” This is especially true for generic drug makers, which rely less on research and development and more on maximizing profits from increasingly large global operations. Teva makes the case that by taking over Mylan they will add to their lead among generic drug stocks and increase annual revenue to around $30 billion as well as realize about $2 billion in cost savings. What Are Generic Drug Stocks? The Food and Drug Administration defines generic drugs. A generic drug (generic drugs, short: generics) is a drug defined as "a drug product that is comparable to a brand/reference listed drug product in dosage form, strength, quality and performance characteristics, and intended use." And generic drugs are cheaper than brand name drugs. This is because generic drug companies do not have the same research and development costs that big pharmaceutical companies have. They simply wait for the patent to expire on new blockbuster medications and make an identical medication for much less money. There are all sorts of new miracle drugs in the world and they are simply too expensive for the vast majority of people who take them. Generic drug stocks prosper because they provide necessary medications for the likes of the aging of populations in North America, Europe and Japan which increase their prescribed drug consumption every year. Should You Invest in Generic Drug Stocks? No matter how attractive generic drug stocks may seem fundamental stock analysis will tell you if a stock or a pending deal has good intrinsic value or not. There are pitfalls that Teva could fall into and not succeed in acquiring Mylan. These are antitrust concerns and a Mylan poison pill. If you are interested in generic drug stocks do your homework first. http://youtu.be/N113JpVAxok

What is MARKET SHARE LIABILITY? What does MARKET SHARE LIABILITY mean? MARKET SHARE LIABILITY meaning - MARKET SHARE LIABILITY definition - MARKET SHARE LIABILITY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Market share liability is a legal doctrine that allows a plaintiff to establish a prima facie case against a group of product manufacturers for an injury caused by a product, even when the plaintiff does not know from which defendant the product originated. The doctrine is unique to the law of the United States and apportions liability among the manufacturers according to their share of the market for the product giving rise to the plaintiff's injury. Market share liability was introduced in the California case Sindell v. Abbott Laboratories. In Sindell, the plaintiffs were injured by DES, a drug prescribed to prevent miscarriage. The mothers of the plaintiffs had taken DES while pregnant, and expert testimony showed this to be a proximate cause of reproductive tract cancers in the plaintiffs years later. The plaintiffs, however, could not ascertain which drug company distributed the DES taken by their mothers. The court responded by allowing the plaintiffs to apportion liability among the defendant drug companies according to their respective shares in the DES market. Sindell laid out the requirements for applying the doctrine of market share liability: First, the defendants in court must constitute substantially all of the market. This is a distinguishing factor from alternative liability, which requires that all of the defendants be in court (See Summers v. Tice). Having "substantially all" of the market makes it more likely that the actual wrongdoer will be in court. A main reason for not requiring all of the relevant market is that as time passes, some manufacturers drop out of the market, and it would raise the bar for the plaintiff too high. Also if all defendants were present, then market share liability would be unnecessary, because the plaintiff would be able to apply the doctrine of alternative liability to put the burden of proving causation onto the defendants. Second, the products must be fungible (i.e. interchangeable—they must be of the same composition). For example, in Skipworth v. Lead Industries Association, the court found the lead paint sold by the defendants to not be fungible because the paints had lead pigments containing different chemical formulations, different amounts of lead, and differed in potential toxicity. Third, the defendants (potential tortfeasors) must all have been in the market within the specific timeframe surrounding the incident. Fourth, the inability to point to a specific tortfeasor must not be the plaintiff's fault. This is particularly relevant in the pharmaceuticals context, as most plaintiffs are prescribed generic drugs and thus have no knowledge of who manufactured the product. Jurisdictions and courts differ on the possibilities open to defendants to absolve themselves of market share liability. In Sindell (California), the court allowed defendants to bring forth exculpatory evidence and thus free themselves of liability. However, in Hymowitz v. Eli Lilly & Co. (New York), the court refused to allow exculpatory evidence because it felt that doing so would undermine the theory underpinning market share liability—because liability is based on relevant market share, providing exculpatory evidence will not reduce a defendant's overall share of the market. Sindell required plaintiffs to join defendant drug companies in a single action. A Wisconsin court took a different approach on this issue in Collins v. Eli Lilly Co. In Collins, the court found that the plaintiff could bring a cause of action against a single defendant, and the burden of proof would be shifted to the defendant to show that they did not produce the DES taken by the plaintiff's mother. Efforts to expand the market share approach beyond DES cases have been mostly rejected because the strict requirements of applying market share liability. Courts have declined to expand the market-share approach to asbestos (Becker v. Baron Bros.), handguns (Hamilton v. Beretta), and lead paint (Santiago v. Sherwin Williams Co.). The market-share approach has been expanded to cases involving MTBE in the New York case In re Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether.
