Fraudes y sus consecuencias: Pfizer Details Payments to Doctors and Researchers – NYTimes.com

Hechos según el New York Times:

– Pfizer comete un fraude sanitario al promover el uso ilegal de una droga para una indicación no aprobada.

– Pfizer tiene que pagar 2.300 millones de dólares por esa causa: “The company will pay a criminal fine of $1.195 billion, the largest criminal fine ever imposed in the United States for any matter. Pharmacia & Upjohn will also forfeit $105 million, for a total criminal resolution of $1.3 billion. In addition, Pfizer has agreed to pay $1 billion to resolve allegations under the civil False Claims Act that the company illegally promoted four drugs – Bextra; Geodon, an anti-psychotic drug; Zyvox, an antibiotic; and Lyrica, an anti-epileptic drug – and caused false claims to be submitted to government health care programs for uses that were not medically accepted indications and therefore not covered by those programs.” The Public Record.

– Según el New York Times (citando a K. Neese, portavoz de Pfizer) Pfizer tiene que publicar obligatoriamente (no en un gesto voluntario de transparencia) información pública sobre los pagos a médicos, grupos médicos, instituciones médicas de investigación: “Pfizer’s August 2009 Corporate Integrity Agreement with the Office of the Inspector General of the Justice Department.” Ver en la propia página de Pfizer: http://www.pfizer.com/responsibility/working_with_hcp/why_disclose_payments_to_hcp.jsp.

“A spokeswoman for Pfizer, Kristen E. Neese, said most of the disclosures were required by an integrity agreement that the company signed in August to settle a federal investigation into the illegal promotion of drugs for off-label uses.

Dr. Freda C. Lewis-Hall, Pfizer’s chief medical officer, characterized the disclosure and Web site as part of “a march to disclosure” that the company started in 2002.”

The Public Record aclara las cosas en http://pubrecord.org/law/4591/pfizer-pleads-guilty-felony-billion/

“American pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Inc. and its subsidiary, Pharmacia & Upjohn Company Inc., have agreed to pay $2.3 billion, the largest health care fraud settlement in the history of the Department of Justice, to resolve criminal and civil liability arising from the illegal promotion of certain pharmaceutical products, the Justice Department announced today.
