Bipartisan Safety Issues: How Many Different Kinds of Black Market Medicines have been Sold in Your State?

In 2012, the FDA discovered that American doctors had purchased illegally imported, counterfeit Avastin from subsidiaries of CanadaDrugs.com. They saved money on the medicine for their patients, but their sources were unreliable: some of the cancer treatments had no active ingredient.

Since then, the agency has issued warnings to more than 3,000 doctors, clinics and hospitals about eight different breaches in the U.S. drug supply chain by rogue distributors such as Richards Pharma, Canada Drugs,  Medical Device King, Gallant Pharmaceuticals, and TC Medical.

These rogue distributors offered 63 different non-FDA approved medicines that treated a wide variety of illnesses, including arthritis, cancer, asthma, infertility, osteoporosis, macular degeneration, Crohn’s disease, as well as IUDs, anesthesia and cosmetic injectables.
