Corporate Whistleblower Center Points to Recent Drug Settlement for Off-Labeling as Lucrative Way For Pharma Reps to Retire Early
Date:10/23/2013

(PRWEB) October 23, 2013

The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) prohibits pharmaceutical companies from marketing drugs for uses other than their intended purposes. The practice of promoting a drug for unapproved use is commonly known as off-labeling. Companies who participate in off-labeling by encouraging sales reps to promote the drugs for non-intended purposes are subject to criminal fines." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.com

Fines for violating FDA rules are massive. According to the Department of Justice, Wyeth Pharmaceuticals recently agreed to pay $490.9 million to settle allegations that it illegally marketed Rapamune, a drug approved for use only in kidney transplant patients. The suit alleged that Wyeth encouraged sales reps to promote the use of Rapamune off-label and provided financial incentives to sales reps who marketed Rapamune to all transplant patients rather than just kidney transplant patients. This suit was brought forward by former Rapamune sales reps, who received a portion of the $490.9 million settlement as a reward.

The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "In addition to off-labeling prescription drug marketing schemes, we are also extremely interested in pharmaceutical companies involved in any kind of kickback schemes to medical doctors including speaking fees. Potential whistleblowers with substantial proof of this type of illegal activity, Medicare fraud, or kickbacks can call us anytime at 866-714-6466 for more information about rewards." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
