Statement by Teva Pharmaceuticals on Eshoo-Barton Bill
Date:3/17/2009

NORTH WALES, Pa., March 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, the leading generic pharmaceutical company, today released the following statement by Debra Barrett, Senior Vice President of Government Affairs on the introduction of a biogenerics bill by Representatives Anna Eshoo and Joe Barton:

"In this year of healthcare reform, consumers should rightfully demand better access to affordable medicines. The legislation re-introduced in the House today is clearly written to protect brand-name drugs and their innovator's government-granted monopoly at the expense of access and innovation. This bill will dampen innovation and deny Americans access to more affordable healthcare.

"Congress took a bold step in 1984 when it passed Hatch-Waxman - an effort that led to the greatest explosion of innovative medicines in history - while creating a pathway for more affordable alternatives. We hope that our policymakers will enact legislation that puts the interests of patients above the guarantee of excessive monopoly."
