CELL THERAPEUTICS PAYS Heavily to Resolve Dispute FOR ALLEGED ILLEGAL MARKETING OF CANCER DRUG

Cell Therapeutics Inc (Seattle WA) has agreed to pay the US $10.5 millon to resolve allegations of the company's alleged illegal marketing// of the anti-cancer prescription drug Trisenox, the US Justice Department announced earlier this month.

According to the government's complaint, CTI promoted the drug for various uses that were unapproved by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

The alleged "off-label" uses caused doctors to prescribe Trisenox to treat various forms of cancer for which the drug was neither approved by the FDA, nor proven to be either safe or effective. The government's suit alleged that because of the company's actions, physicians who prescribed Trisenox off-label unwittingly submitted false claims for reimbursement to the Medicare program from 2001-05. In 2005, CTI sold Trisenox to another company, and the drug's new owner halted CTI's misleading off-label promotion campaign.

"Cell Therapeutics essentially subverted a regulatory system designed to assure that patients receive only those drugs that have been proven to be effective for their illness," said Peter D. Keisler, Asst Attorney General for the Justice Dept's Civil Div.

Under the rules in effect at the time of the conduct in question, the complaint asserts that Medicare paid only for anti-cancer drugs when prescribed for FDA-approved uses, or uses that were determined to be medically accepted as published in certain specific pharmacological texts known collectively as the compendia. The government alleges that CTI knew that Trisenox was FDA-approved for only one type of cancer and was not listed as a medically accepted treatment in the compendia for any other condition. Nevertheless, the complaint states and claims that CTI falsely marketed the drug to doctors by suggesting that Trisenox was FDA-approved and listed as medically accepted in the compendia for other types of cancers.
