Date:11/21/2008

WOONSOCKET, R.I., Nov. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- CVS Caremark today applauded the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for holding a public Roundtable to address issues of competition and continued innovation under a framework for follow-on biologic drugs.

"CVS Caremark serves millions of patients, many of whom depend on specialty drugs to provide life-saving and life-enhancing treatments for their serious conditions. We support the creation of a federal legislative pathway for FDA approval of these medicines to provide access and savings to patients and payors," said Dave Golding, R.Ph., Executive Vice President for Specialty Pharmacy services at CVS Caremark.

Golding was a participant at the FTC Roundtable.
