Counterfeiting - A Multi-Industry and a Consumer Threat

The global manufacture and distribution of counterfeit products is big business. Most consumers are aware of street vendors selling shirts, hats, watches, sunglasses, CDs and videos. However, many consumers may not be aware of the other types of counterfeit products that are, in some countries, flooding the marketplace and displacing genuine products. These 'other' counterfeit goods that are also manufactured and distributed in huge volumes include such everyday products as detergents, shampoo, lotions, batteries and razor blades. Many of these 'other' products pose serious public health and safety risks.

Counterfeiters know no limits. Counterfeit industrial lubricants, foods, auto parts and pharmaceuticals are also made and distributed to consumers and pose significant risks. The International Chamber of Commerce's Counterfeiting Intelligence Bureau estimates that trade in counterfeit goods accounts for approximately seven per cent of world trade, equal to hundreds of billions of dollars.

Sourcing Commercial Drugs for Clinical Trials: US vs. EU Understanding the Differences

Myoderm

Sourcing commercial drugs for clinical trials is a dynamic process. There are many factors to consider: single source or regional sourcing, strategy, price, supply availability, lead times, and documentation are just a few. In the past, there were fewer clinical trials that required commercial drug sourcing, so demand was not as high. Today, the demand for commercial drugs in clinical trials has greatly increased and, as a result, inventory is tighter, orders are monitored more closely by manufacturers, and lead times have increased. This report highlights the key differences in sourcing from the US and EU.
