Meet The Authors
EXAMINES THE COMPLEX RELATIONSHIPS between the pharmaceutical industry and health care delivery systems, insurers, and regulators.
The new and expanded Second Edition of Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Law: Regulation of Research, Development, and Marketing,offers readers a comprehensive and readable text about the dynamic and complex area of pharmaceutical and medical device law in a changing health care landscape. In this unique treatise, expert authors analyze and organize legal developments affecting the expansive regulatory arena covering drug creation, production, and sales.
With the graying of the Baby Boomer generation and the financial pressures that this group’s increased health care needs have made on federal and state governments, more and more attention is directed to drug costs and the profits of pharmaceutical manufacturers. The federal government’s increased reimbursement for pharmaceutical products under Medicare Part D has created a corresponding pressure on regulators and prosecutors to ensure that providers and pharmaceutical entities do not violate any of a number of applicable statutes and agency regulations. Obtaining a solid understanding about this area of health care practice is critical for transactional attorneys, for lawyers who counsel clients about compliance considerations, and for litigators who get involved in some of these complex cases. Annual supplements to the treatise will be invaluable in tracking changes to the relevant laws and how they are interpreted by the government and the courts.
