Drugs are designed to help diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent disease. Whether they’ve been poorly tested, incorrectly administered, improperly marketed, or contaminated, pharmaceutical drugs designed to help us can become dangerous or even deadly.
In 2011, Americans spent $320 billion on medicines, approximately 34% of the $956 billion spent worldwide. The IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics estimates that global spending will reach $1.2 trillion by 2016.
With profits so large, even seemingly large fines of $500 million or $2.2 billion pale in comparison to the profits big pharma can gain from sales of a drug marketed for off-label sales or failing to report adverse events.
