PhRMA Revised Marketing Code Reinforces Commitment to Responsible Interactions With Healthcare Professionals
Date:7/10/2008

WASHINGTON, July 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Reflecting the continuing commitment of America's pharmaceutical research and biotechnology companies to pursue policies and practices that best serve the needs of patients and the healthcare community, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) Board of Directors has adopted measures to enhance the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals.

The newly revised PhRMA Code, which builds on improvements already made in the previous 2002 version, is part of an ongoing effort to ensure that pharmaceutical marketing practices comply with the highest ethical standards.

"Informative, ethical and professional relationships between healthcare providers and America's pharmaceutical research companies are instrumental to effective patient care," said Richard Clark, PhRMA Chairman and Chairman and CEO, Merck & Co., Inc. "We take this responsibility seriously and are constantly reexamining ways we can enhance these essential company-physician interactions and reinforce the integrity of information about our medicines."

"Doctors rely on accurate and appropriate information about new medicines in order to provide the best possible care to their patients. The changes to the Code demonstrate that the members of PhRMA are committed to continue enhancing how our industry serves physicians and patients," said David Norton, Chairman of the PhRMA Affordability & Access Committee spearheading the Code changes and Company Group Chairman, Pharmaceuticals Group, Johnson & Johnson.

The voluntary PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals, which will take effect in January 2009, reaffirms that interactions between company representatives and healthcare professionals "should be focused on informing the healthcare professionals about products, providing scientific and educational information, and supporting medical research and education."
