New Strategies to Combat Prescription Drug Diversion from Foreign Markets

For years, medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies have struggled to combat the diversion of their products from foreign markets into the United States. Diversion jeopardizes patient safety and undercuts sales of legal products in the U.S.  In 2012, a series of prescription drug diversion networks were responsible for distributing counterfeit cancer drugs across the U.S. Unfortunately, six years later, FDA and the Department of Justice have not been able to bring diversion to a halt.

This panel, which is composed of attorneys from King & Spalding’s International Trade and FDA & Life Sciences teams, will explore new strategies to combat diversion and highlight steps private companies can take to supplement government enforcement in this space.
