Pfizer to pay $784.6 million to resolve Wyeth false claims lawsuit

Pfizer Inc (PFE.N) has agreed to pay $784.6 million to resolve allegations that Wyeth, which it acquired in 2009, underpaid drug rebates to Medicaid, the federal health insurance program, the Justice Department said on Wednesday.

The settlement resolves claims by the U.S. and states that Wyeth knowingly reported false and fraudulent prices on two of its anti-acid drugs, Protonix Oral and Protonix IV, the Justice Department said.

Pfizer acquired Wyeth in 2009, about three years after Wyeth had ended the conduct that led to settlement, the Justice Department said.

"We are pleased to have finalized the agreement to resolve these cases, which involve historic conduct that occurred at least 10 years ago, before we acquired Wyeth,” said Doug Lankler, Pfizer executive vice president and general counsel, in a statement.

"The resolution of these claims reflects our desire to put these historic cases behind us and to focus on the needs of patients," Lankler said.

How Conflicts of Interest Have Corrupted the CDC

by Joseph Mercola, MD

Conflicts of interest have become more the rule than the occasional exception. Even the trusted US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) receives heavy funding from industry.

How this conflict of interest may have affected the organization’s decisions is the topic of an article1 in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), penned by the journal’s associate editor, Jeanne Lenzer, who notes:

Parents who fail to vaccinate their children in Uganda will face six months in jail, according to a new law signed by President Yoweri Museveni.

It also requires children to have an immunisation card to allow them to go to school.

The law will help the government reach its vaccination target, Health Minister Sarah Achieng Opendi told the BBC.

Some parents and members of a religious cult have refused to allow their children vaccinated, she says.

The government's vaccination campaign targets several life-threatening diseases including polio and meningitis.

In 2015, the World Health Organization estimated that 70 children out of every 1,000 will die before they reached the age of five in Uganda.

The report Big Pharma doesn't like at all

The report Big Pharma doesn't like at all

In case you missed it, the pharmaceutical industry took a beating last year over drug prices.

Remember Martin Shkreli, the grinning, villainous poster child for pharmaceutical greed, who raised the price of a lifesaving drug, Daraprim, by 5,000 percent overnight?

And Valeant Pharmaceuticals, which raised the price of two heart drugs by 500 percent and 200 percent?

And Questcor Pharmaceuticals, which raised the price of a multiple sclerosis drug from $1,235 a vial to more than $29,000?

By early fall, the issue of soaring drug prices reached a boiling point, sparking front page headlines, Congressional hearings, and denunciations by nearly every presidential candidate.

Ministers launch urgent inquiry into NHS officials' second jobs at drugs firms

Government announces "urgent investigation" as Telegraph reveals how scores of officials involved in assessing which drugs are given to patients are also acting as paid consultants to pharmaceutical companies

Ministers have launched an urgent inquiry into the practice of NHS staff being paid by drugs companies, following a Telegraph investigation.

This newspaper has revealed that more than 130 NHS officials involved in assessing which drugs are given to patients are also acting as paid consultants to pharmaceutical companies.

Scores of health service staff, most of whom are managers or other senior officials, are receiving generous fees to sit on “advisory boards” for drugs firms whose products they are responsible for considering on behalf of the NHS.

Alistair Burt, the health minister, said: “These are very serious allegations – an urgent investigation is under way and action will be taken against any NHS staff attempting to influence purchasing decisions in return for payment, gifts or hospitality.

Curb Antibiotic Use in Farm Animals

Curb Antibiotic Use in Farm Animals
New guidelines to curb the overuse of drugs in food animals are inadequate to deal with a growing crisis

In 1945 Alexander Fleming, the man who discovered penicillin, warned that overuse of his miracle drug could make bacteria immune to it. He was right—and not just about penicillin: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has estimated that antibiotic-resistant bacteria infect more than two million people a year, at least 23,000 of whom die. A significant part of that overuse, the cdc says, involves feeding the drugs to the animals we eat. Farmers do this not to cure or prevent disease but simply to make livestock grow bigger and faster.

Officials Cover Up Dangers of HPV Vaccine Declares Scientist

| Source: Weston A. Price Foundation

Washington, D.C., Jan. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Sin Hang Lee, MD, Director, Milford Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory, has submitted an official, open-letter complaint to the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr. Margaret Chan, alleging gross misconduct, malfeasance and what potentially amounts to criminal behavior to mislead the global public regarding the safety of HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix.

Dr. Lee has submitted a lengthy letter detailing communications between health officials from the US, Canada, Japan, and the WHO, which demonstrate that these officials knew that HPV vaccines cause an inflammatory reaction greater than other vaccines, yet reassured the public in official hearings and statements that the vaccines were safe.
