Pour Encourager Les Autres
There have been a couple of drug safety issues here in the US over the last few years - you may have heard about one or two of them. Less well known, unless you're in the industry, have been the fines that some companies have paid for deficiencies on their manufacturing end. Schering-Plough's $500 million dollar one about five years ago is one of the most memorable, but there have been others.
But other countries have different approaches to drug safety. And if their regulatory apparatus breaks down in some way, they have, well. . .different approaches to enforcement. Don't look for a Washington think-tank to advocate this method any time soon, although there are times that I'm really glad that it won't come to a vote.
