In another effort to widen access to medicines, European consumer groups are urging the European Council to investigate four drug makers — including Roche and Gilead Sciences — for alleged anticompetitive practices.
In each instance cited by the consumer groups, the companies employed different tactics, such as halting supplies of several medicines as a negotiating tactic to boost prices, working with a rival to keep one of two medicines off the market, and imposing a high price for a key medicine when no competition existed.
I just noticed this story again from a different page. Were the ‘tomb stone’-like graphics a subliminal message – or just coincidence?
