The pharmaceutical companies need to reduce to pave way for more holistic, homepathic treatments instead of ingesting lab chemicals that always has harmful and sometimes fatal side effects.
If they outsource the jobs we should ban their products....
let's lay the messiah bHo off !
Interesting........laying off thousands.....drug shortage at serious level in hospitals,etc. Go figure. Looks like the drug companies are deliberately creating a critical shortage of medications! Fewer pills - pay more to get what's available! hmmmmmmmmmmm Bend over folks, get ready for a reaming!
*WHEW!!* At first I thought it said "...driven by the expiration of PATIENTS" ..Not patents! That sacred me, I take Nexium! LOL
Whew, glad this is an overseas company. The loss of employees will be considered foreign employees and not counted towards our unemployment figures.
15,000 people in the U.S. are employed by AstraZebeca! I would think that with wagws, etc. paid in the US that their firing would /should be counted.
This must be a l;ie as Obama says the economy is impoved ...ohh I forget Obama hasnt told the truth yet about anything
every comment here is honestly ignorant. how can people be so uninformed?
What's your brilliant comment? That certainly isn't very smart.
Ummm-that was my comment !
Let's think for a moment. What happens when the patens run out? Will the drug no longer be made? Don't they make money making the pills or are they living on the Patten? These drugs can't cost what they sell for. So where is all the money going? Some one is still getting rich.
When the patents run out, other companies are permitted to manufacture the same as 'generic.' As far as the drugs costing what they sell for--no they don't cost that much from lab to shelf...but research and development to find miracle drugs does cost. We pay for it all.
Drugs still under patent can cost 10 times more than the same drug/generic drug. They can charge so much more because of all the research time and money it took to invent the drug. I say 10 times because the drug I take is like that but I bet some drugs are even more expensive vs generic. It only takes pennies to make the drug, you pay for research and development is what I'm trying to say
