ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- BNA Books, a division of specialized news and information publisher BNA, today announces the publication of the 2011 Cumulative Supplement to Pharmaceutical Law: Regulation of Research, Development, and Marketing, providing important updates on securities cases and developments involving fraud and abuse, HIPAA, and the FDA. The treatise is one of the many ABA/BNA publications available from BNA Books.
