仿制药的真相 – Bottle of Lies: The Inside Story of the Generic Drug Boom by Katherine Eban

仿制药是在品牌药专利到期之后,合法仿制出来的廉价版本。据称它的成分、效果与品牌药几乎一样。仿制药的广泛应用被誉为“21世纪公共卫生领域最伟大的进步”。

如今,仿制药占据了药品市场近90%的份额。但这个行业的真实状况究竟如何?它是充斥着不守信用的造假者,还是不乏确保品质的折扣商?

凯瑟琳·埃班对仿制药覆盖全球的产业链进行了历时十年的调查,揭示了其背后的安全隐患及其给全球公众健康带来的可怕风险。通过采访举报人、调查员、医务人员,梳理美国药监局数千页机密文件中的海量信息,埃班曝光了一个欺诈猖獗、伪造数据的行业。企业管理者为降低成本和追求利润最大化,不惜规避几乎每一条安全生产原则。而病人在不知情的状况下服用这些药物,会产生难以预测的后果,有时甚至危及生命。

这一切的发生并不是孤立的,仿制药产业可谓是全球化的终极试金石。凯瑟琳·埃班这本惊心动魄的纪实文学将引领读者见证一项公共卫生领域的创举如何一步步发展成为一场骇人骗局。

Katherine Eban’s Bottle of Lies exposes the deceit behind generic-drug manufacturing—and the attendant risks for global health. Drawing on exclusive accounts from whistleblowers and regulators, as well as thousands of pages of confidential FDA documents, Eban reveals an industry where fraud is rampant, companies routinely falsify data, and executives circumvent almost every principle of safe manufacturing to minimize cost and maximize profit, confident in their ability to fool inspectors. Meanwhile, patients unwittingly consume medicine with unpredictable and dangerous effects.

The story of generic drugs is truly global. It connects middle America to China, India, sub-Saharan Africa and Brazil, and represents the ultimate litmus test of globalization: what are the risks of moving drug manufacturing offshore, and are they worth the savings? 

A decade-long investigation with international sweep, high-stakes brinkmanship and big money at its core, Bottle of Lies reveals how the world’s greatest public-health innovation has become one of its most astonishing swindles.
