Posted on August 29, by Scott Alexander [Content note: We are the only developed nation that lets drugmakers set their own prices, maximizing profits the same way sellers of chairs, mugs, shoes, or any other manufactured goods would. Let me ask Vox a question: When was the last time greedy shoe executives forced most Americans to go barefoot?
And why do you think that is? Its active ingredient, epinephrine, is off-patent, was being synthesized as early asand costs about ten cents per EpiPen-load. They keep trying, and the FDA keeps refusing to approve them for human use.
The makers of the original EpiPen sued them, saying that they had patented the idea epinephrine-injecting devices. As far as I know, nobody has ever publicly said what the problem was — we can only hope they at least told Teva.
Inanother group, Sandoz, asked for permission to sell a generic EpiPen. Once again, the original manufacturers sued for patent infringement.
InSanoji asked for permission to sell a generic EpiPen called e-cue. But after unconfirmed reports of incorrect dosage delivery, they recalled all their products off the market. This year, a company called Adamis decided that in order to get around the patent on devices that inject epinephrine, they would just sell pre-filled epinephrine syringes and let patients inject themselves.
The FDA rejected it, noting that the company involved had done several studies but demanding that they do some more. None of this is because EpiPens are just too hard to make correctly.
Europe has eight competing versions. But aside from the EpiPen itself, only one competitor has ever made it past the FDA and onto the pharmacy shelf — a system called Adrenaclick. With ordinary medications, pharmacists are allowed to interpret prescriptions for a brand name as prescriptions for the generic unless doctors ask them not to.
EpiPens are protected from this substitution. So Adrenaclick continues to languish in obscurity. So why is the government having so much trouble permitting a usable form of a common medication? There are a lot of different factors, but let me focus on the most annoying one. EpiPen manufacturer Mylan Inc spends about a million dollars on lobbying per year.
They seem to have given the most to defeat S. The bill would ban pharmaceutical companies from bribing generic companies not to create generic drugs.
So let me try to make this easier to understand. Imagine that the government creates the Furniture and Desk Association, an agency which declares that only IKEA is allowed to sell chairs. Imagine that this whole system is going on at the same time that IKEA spends millions of dollars lobbying senators about chair-related issues, and that these same senators vote down a bill preventing IKEA from paying off other companies to stay out of the chair industry.The era between , better known as the 20th century, witnessed the birth of some of the most remarkable creations.
