Pfizer’s history of illegal marketing

pillsBloomberg News reports on the history of Pfizer, the world’s largest drug company, illegally promoting drugs for uses not approved by the FDA – even after being heavily fined for doing so.  Law Professor Kevin Outterson, an expert on drug marketing and director of the BU School of Law’s Health Law Program, says big pharma can afford to pay the fines for such transgressions.

“Drug companies are paying these fines so frequently that they begin to look like speeding tickets when you’re earning billions in profits.”
