Opis produktu

This is the first book to examine how effectively American and supranational EU governments have regulated innovative pharmaceuticals during the last 30 years regarding public health. It explains why pharmaceutical regulation has been misdirected by commercial interests and misconce1. Putting Pharmaceutical Regulation to the Test: A Social Science for Public Health 2. The Political Economy of Innovative Drug Regulation in the NeoLiberal Era 3. Designs on Diabetes Drugs 4. Desperate Regulation for Desperate Cancer Patients 5. The Making of a Harmful Therapeutic Breakthrough 6. The Regulatory Science and Politics of Risk Management 7. Conclusions and Pol''Precisely 50 years have passed since the first truly modern system of medicines regulation came into operation in The Netherlands. That is a good reason to take stock of what drug regulation has achieved in half a century and where it has perhaps failed to serve society optimally. Courtney Davis and John Abraham have now done precisely that in a thoughtful and independent study of developments on both sides of the Atlantic. Their findings make clear the extent to which empty rhetoric from every direction (emanating most loudly from industrys puppet organizations and from neoliberal politicians or think tanks) has been allowed to dominate the debate.

However Davis and Abraham do not stop with just criticizing the current situation: they offer concrete steps that can be taken to restore drug regulation to what should be its true function. This book should be the starting point for anyone interested in understanding the forces that are shaping the medicines we take.
