GPhA Statement on FTC Report on 'Follow-on Biologic Drug Competition'
Date:6/10/2009

ARLINGTON, Va., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Generic Pharmaceutical Association (GPhA) released the following statement today from GPhA President and CEO Kathleen Jaeger regarding publication of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Report on "Follow-on Biologic Drug Competition."
