Drug Research

Corporate Crime in the Pharmaceutical Industry is a book by Dr John Braithwaite where he describes many samples of corporate crime within the pharmaceutical industry. Dr Braithwaite's revealing study is founded on extensive international research and includes interviews with 131 senior executives of pharmaceutical companies in the usa, the uk, Australia, Mexico and Guatemala. "Data fabrication is extremely widespread", says Dr Braithwaite, "that it is called 'making' within the Japanese pharmaceutical industry, 'graphiting' or 'dry labelling' in the usa." He further states: "Pharmaceutical companies face great temptations to mislead health authorities concerning the safety of their products. It's a do or die industry - a lot of companies get practically all their profits from just 2 or 3 therapeutic winners. The majority of the data that the Australian Drug Evaluation Committee relies upon in deciding questions of safety and efficacy is data from other countries, especially the US. Inquiries into scientific fraud in the US demonstrate there's a substantial problem of fraud in safety testing of medication in the US, just like has been documented in Japan." In his book Dr. Braithwaite reports that between 1977 and 1980 the United States Food and Drug Administration discovered 62 doctors who had submitted manipulated or downright falsified clinical data. Another study conducted by the FDA has exposed that one in five doctors investigated, who perform field research of the latest drugs, had invented the data they sent to the drug companies, and pocketed the fees.
