New Generics in 2008
AbstractAbstract The existence of generic medicines promotes the availability of medicines at a price lower than the original product. Pharmacological studies have only to prove that the generic product is bio-equivalent to the original medicine before registration and no clinical trials to prove efficacy and safety are required. Once a generic medicine is registered, the price will be determined by market forces, which may drive down the price of similar products, including the innovator medicine.
