Welcome to the October 24, 2017, issue of Pharma Industry News Update (aka PinUp). Pharma financial support of patient groups is nothing new, but when you learn that 93% of them receive pharma funding it's a shock. And it seems money buys influence. IMHO, it may be time for more transparency.

Welcome to the October 20, 2017, issue of Pharma Industry News Update (aka PinUp). Is the drug industry wholly, partly, or not to blame at all for the current opioid epidemic? There are many players in the 'drug industry,' but most consumers and voters only think Big Pharma when they here that phrase. But let's not forget the wholesalers that distribute drugs to pharmacies and hospitals. They are saying, 'it's not us, it's the DEA's fault.' And let's not forget to blame patients who willingly are recruited to lobby for less restrictions on opioids.

Welcome to the October 10, 2017, issue of Pharma Industry News Update (aka PinUp). 'Crock of shite!' is a phrase I borrowed from my Irish friends. You can guess the King's English version. More politely known as 'a pile of poo', the term 'a crock of shit(e)' derives from an ancient Roman custom where people would poo into a pot if they were particularly bored by whichever philosopher happened to be talking rubbish at the time. What Purdue proposes as a way to combat overuse of opioids for pain is not so much boring as it is insulting to our intelligence! And don't get me started on the 'crock of shite' celebrities engage in when shilling for the pharma industry!
