How Does the FDA Approve a Drug?
Have you ever taken an over the counter medication for heartburn? How about an antibiotic for an ear infection? At some point pretty much all of us have visited a pharmacy to pick up a drug, but likely didn't consider where these drugs come from or how they are made.

Generic Drugs Become Expensive
Disturbing trend in drug pricing… next When Cheap Generics Morph Into Expensive Prescriptions Dr. Jack Cush writing in Rheumnow reported The Wall Street Journal has issued an alarming trend in generic drug pricing that affects many, especially the elderly and those with arthrtis. Pharmaceutical companies have developed a growing number of combined generic products whose sum is far more than the cost of the individual generics. For example, the migraine medication Treximet has two active ingredients—sumatriptan and naproxen. As generics these two drugs may result in a copay is zero dollars for the average patient. A box of nine tablets of Treximet costs $728.67, according to Truven Health Analytics. But the average actual cost for a box is about $353, and the cost of its two constituents, sumatriptan and naproxen, would cost around $19, according to GoodRx. Others combo agents in this category include acne cream Acanya, Duexis and Vimovo for arthritis pain and the weight-loss pill Qsymia. Comment: Pharmaceutical companies can be sneaky I think.

Alvogen founder: Generic drug price wars will drive consolidation | World Finance
Generic pharmaceuticals has become big business in recent years, as the drug industry has ricocheted down a series of patent cliffs over the last decade. You'd think it would be triples all round for investors; but in the US, publicly listed generics companies have actually seen their market capitalisation drop 57 percent since January 2016. Robert Wessman, founder of Alvogen, explains that customer consolidation and over-leveraging to acquire assets has changed the industry permanently.

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

Branded or Generics?
Short explanation of differences/similarities between Branded and Generic medications. Branded drugs are essentially the first-to-market medicines and are covered in the initial period of marketing by a patent. They tend to be priced high because of the need to recoup investments made during research and development. Post licensing, the branded drug enjoys a protect period while being covered by patent. Once the patent runs out, the active ingredient can be marketed in generic forms. Generic drugs appear in the market once the patent cover for the drug expires. They are licensed primarily based on adherence to quality manufacturing standards, and the establishment of therapeutic 'equivalence' or bio-equivalence. Essentially generic drugs must in interchangeable with the branded item. The regulation for this is usually the national drug regulatory departments. In Singapore, this would be handled by the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) Singapore. Generic drugs are priced much lower because companies marketing generic drugs have not made any prior R&D investments during drug development. Generally, generic drugs are as safe and effective as branded ones, but much cheaper. Unless really necessary, prescribers should use generic medicines. The FDA has some information on this. https://www.fda.gov/Drugs/ResourcesForYou/Consumers/BuyingUsingMedicineSafely/GenericDrugs/ucm169209.htm#Patient For more of this, please visit www.pharmacologytutorials.com
Brand vs Generic [Is there a difference?]
It is commonly accepted that something that is less money is of poorer quality. Is there a difference between brand name and generic medications? Generic products like no name products on grocery store shelves are often characterized as being of poorer quality than the brand name product. Generic drugs are not like no name potato chips. Generic drugs go through rigorous studies to prove that they are bioequivalent meaning that it has the same drug, same dose and same route of administration before being put on the market. The only difference between a generic and a brand name drug are the excipients. These are binder’s fillers, food coloring, or flavouring. They are not exactly the same, but they work the exact same. Branding seems to increase the placebo effect associated with a treatment, This is probably because people associate branding with higher quality and expect that they will work better.

If we have to spend even more....nowadays our income is not more then 5-thousand Rupees or 6-thousand Rupees (109 US dollars). So what are we going to spend on medicines, and what will we spend on food?" 14. Protesters walking down the street. STORYLINE People living with HIV, rights groups and activists from Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) held a protest outside the Novartis Company's Headquarters in Mumbai on Friday, demanding the right to cheap drugs. The Swiss drugmaker Novartis' six year legal battle against the Indian government, now at India's Supreme Court, may force India to grant patents for generic drugs, making them unaffordable. In a case that could affect India's role as drug provider to the developing world, the Supreme Court will give a verdict on whether the government had the right to deny a patent to Novartis AG for its lifesaving cancer treatment Gleevec. Aid groups say a victory for the company could open the door to patenting dozens of other generic medicines made by India's drug industry and sold to needy nations at far lower costs than those charged by Western drug manufacturers. "All these multinationals, they don't care about the poor man, they don't care about people getting well," said Eldred Tellis, a Consultant on Drug Abuse and HIV/AIDS Programmes. The case, launched soon after India passed its Patent Act in 2005, revolves around a legal provision aimed at preventing companies from seeking patents or extensions based on minor changes to existing treatments - a practice known as "evergreening" that is common in Europe and the United States. The provision has allowed India to reject patents for a range of older drugs for cancer, AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other illnesses that are made by India's generics industry. It also led to the rejection of Novartis' application for Gleevec, in which it argued a newer, more easily absorbed version qualified for a patent because it was demonstrably more effective. The blockbuster drug keeps chronic myeloid leukemia and some other cancers in remission. Its earlier version was ineligible for an Indian patent because the country gives no protection to drugs invented before 1995. India now makes one-fifth of the world's generics, sending about half abroad.

Generic Medications For Your  Pets
Generic medications are drugs that contain the same active ingredients as the branded drug, but are sold at a lower cost. Generics are very common in human medicine, now making up more than 80% of all prescriptions. In recent years, generic pet medications, including pain relievers, heartworm prevention and even flea and tick protection, have become available. Pet owners may have questions about the effectiveness and safety of these products. But rest assured that generics are regulated just as tightly as brand name medications.

The Real Deal: Generic drug prices
ALBANY -- If you take generic medications, you've likely noticed you're paying more for some of them. Certain drugs have quadrupled in price over the last year. Patients and pharmacists are furious and now lawmakers are looking to do something about it. "Last month, I had to order like 6 different prescriptions and it came to quite a bit," says Arlene Laboy of Sloansville. She recently received a warning from her pharmacist that she was not expecting, "they have told me that some of my medications are going to be increased," she says. Laboy, like millions of others, relies on a number of generic drugs to stay healthy and she's paying a lot more for a few of the same pills she's been taking for years. "It's a sporadic issue, it may be a handful of medications, maybe 15-20 at a time but what is incredible is the percentage of increase in price, something that could be 8 cents is now 9 dollars a pill," says John McDonald, owner of Marra's Pharmacy in Cohoes. A few examples, the price of Doxycycline, an antibiotic used to treat infections went from $20 for a 100-pill bottle in October of 2013 to nearly $2,000 a year later, Albuterol Sulfate, a common asthma treatment shot from $11 per bottle to $434. "There are different reasons, sometimes valid reasons‚there may be a raw material shortage, an FDA inspection may close down a few facilities usually in a foreign country and then there are times there are no valid excuses, we don't get a valid reason," McDonald says. Even if you're not taking any of the impacted medications, you're still paying for them, "we spend 15 cents of every premium dollar just on paying for drugs," says Paul Macielak, the President of the New York State Health Plan Association which represents insurers. And at the moment, he says, there is little oversight on how those prices are set, "pharmaceuticals today is the most profitable sector in healthcare, I mean I think the running profit is around 20%, overall that's more than five times what health plans and hospitals earn in terms of any kind of a margin, so that's something I think warrants somebody looking at," he says. Hearings are being held both on Capitol Hill and in Albany to discuss what can be done to increase transparency of generic drug pricing. "For the most part, generics are very cost effective options, the problem is though when you have these roller coaster episodes, it really wreaks havoc in the market," McDonald says. The Generic Pharmaceutical Association says while there have been some price spikes, they do not reflect the broader U.S. market, which includes 12,000 generic medications. Either way, for Laboy who is on a fixed income, these ups and downs are causing some serious budget issues.

Nonprofit generic drug venture could include third of hospital market
A nonprofit generic drug company led by some well-known U.S. hospital systems and the Department of Veterans Affairs is trying to expand the market for inexpensive medicines — fast. The nonprofit aims to fulfill two needs. It wants to produce generic drugs that are in short supply. And it's trying to create more competition for pricey, older off-patent drugs so that they become more affordable. The fast-rising company could soon count one-third of all U.S. hospital operators as its members. Seventy hospital systems have expressed interest in joining the venture since its launch about six weeks ago, said Dan Liljenquist, vice president at Intermountain Healthcare in Utah, one of the lead institutions behind the project, on Monday. The driving force behind the plan is not a typical nonprofit backer but a businessman who adamantly believes in the role of capitalism in health care. Liljenquist, who came up with the idea and ran it by former HHS Secretary Mike Leavitt for his approval, described himself as a conservative Republican — he once mounted a primary challenge to Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) — who wants to "make markets work." But speaking at a Johns Hopkins Carey Business School meeting on drug pricing and access on Monday, he argued that portions of the generic drug space amount to a market failure that capitalist solutions alone can't correct. He pointed to shortages of hundreds of old drugs and instances where old off-patent medicine like Martin Shkreli's Daraprim have no generic competition, leading to huge price spikes. The nonprofit — led by Intermountain with Ascension, SSM Health, Trinity Health and the Department of Veterans Affairs — plans to directly ship to hospitals, bypassing wholesalers and other middlemen to keep costs down. It will also publish product prices. There will be a single market price and justifications for increases driven by higher raw material costs or investments in new manufacturing, similar to how public utilities defend rate adjustments. The nonprofit will be incorporated this summer and should begin operating in the fall, focusing first on the lowest-hanging fruit: off-patent drugs deemed essential medicines by groups like the World Health Organization that are in short supply. If successful, it aims to look at making other medicines like insulin, which has become very expensive for consumers despite being on the market for decades, or the transformative cancer drug Gleevec, which recently went generic but hasn’t seen prices come down very much, Liljenquist said. "We initially thought it would take us five years to get 10 drugs to market, but we're now thinking it will be a lot faster than that," Liljenquist said Monday. Liljenquist has been making the rounds pitching his plan. He met with the full bipartisan staff of the Senate HELP Committee last week, as well as with Hatch, Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and John Thune (R-S.D). and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy's offices last week. "We said we don't need anything from you. We just want to make sure FDA rules are applied to use as fairly as anyone else," Liljenquist said. He acknowledged that drugs the venture makes may not be the cheapest on the market, but added the nonprofit will offer health systems the assurance of constant supply. There aren't many incentives for redundancy in the current drug market, Liljenquist said. "We may not be the lowest price on market but will be the lowest price with redundant supply ... like a public utility would be focused on not having rolling blackouts. I think that is something our members will pay for." He also hinted of future partnerships with businesses like Amazon that are looking to disrupt health care. Liljenquist said he had a conversation with a major pharmacy benefits manager about his plan — and they directed him to Amazon and similar companies who have the scale to disrupt the current drug market.

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.

10 “Generic” Product Names You Didn’t Realize Were TRADEMARKS
Check out our New Biography Channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/biographics A trademark usually presents itself in the form of a name, a logo, a design, or a phrase, with the purpose of distinguishing one manufacturer’s products from another. Sometimes, however, when business is really good for a particular brand, or it has a head start over the competition, then that particular brand might just become a proprietary eponym, or generic trademark. This means that if a product develops a substantial market share over the other manufacturers, or it becomes well ingrained into the public consciousness, then its brand could replace the name for the entire industry. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 Help us translate our videos: https://www.youtube.com/timedtext_cs_queue?msg=10&tab=0 - Learn more why you might want to help: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6052538 Find more lists at: http://www.toptenz.net Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

The EpiPen Has Been Misclassified As A Generic Drug Since 2009
On Tuesday, Senator Charles Grassley said that the internal watchdog at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services warned the office in charge of federal health insurance programs, that Mylan's Nv EpiPen was improperly classified as a generic drug in 2009. According to Grassley's office, the watchdog office notified the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services about the problematic classification. Last month Mylan said that it intends to pay $465 million to settle with the U.S. Justice Department, over charges of the EpiPen being misclassified as a generic drug, instead a of a branded. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/ilHfskoOFhM/us-senate-mylan-idUSKBN1332F4 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

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.
