This week’s Pharma Research VIDEO Report: 1) Costs for medications will rise 3-5% this year, after having dramatically slowed in recent years. 2) Pharmaceutical companies have radically reduced what they pay doctors to speak, well at least many of them have. 3) Generic drug manufacturers will fight FDA proposals that they be required to update their product labels when new information with concerns about branded equivalents appear. 4) FDA will make availability of adverse event reports much easier to find and collect. 5) Health care providers say the Affordable Care Act needs changes and revisions, but overwhelmingly see it as a positive step for U.S. healthcare. 6) The multimillion dollar injectable drug market for chronic conditions like diabetes may be in or a shakeup if Mir Imran’s “Robotic Pill” gets FDA approval. It is in preclinical testing. 7) Media technology company Sticky wins the PM360 award for most innovative company. 8) A press release last week declared the first broadcast medical marijuana commercial. The release pointed to Comcast as the broadcaster. Since the taping of this video, PRVR has learned that this release was part of a misleading campaign. We apologize for this mistaken report.
Here is the link to the commercial:
