Diffusion of counterfeit drugs in developing countries and stability of galenics stored for months under different conditions of temperature and relative humidity. (7/15)

AIM: To investigate the diffusion of counterfeit medicines in developing countries and to verify the stability of galenic dosage forms to determine the stability of galenics prepared and stored in developing countries. METHODS: We purchased 221 pharmaceutical samples belonging to different therapeutic classes both in authorized and illegal pharmacies and subjected them to European Pharmacopoeia, 7th ed. quality tests. An UV-visible spectrophotometric assay was used to determine the galenics stability under different conditions of temperature (T) and relative humidity (RH). RESULTS: A substantial percentage of samples was substandard (52%) and thus had to be considered as counterfeit. Stability tests for galenics showed that the tested dosage forms were stable for 24 months under "standard" (t=25+/-2 degrees C, RH=50+/-5%) conditions. Under "accelerated" (t=40+/-2 degrees C, RH=50+/-5%) conditions, samples were stable for 3 months provided that they were stored in glass containers. Stability results of samples stored in "accelerated" conditions were similar to those obtained by on site in tropical countries and could so supply precious information on the expected stability of galenics in tropical countries. CONCLUSION: This study gives useful information about the presence of counterfeit medicinal products in the pharmacies of many developing countries. This should serve as an alarm bell and an input for the production of galenics. We recommend setting up of galenic laboratories in developing countries around the globe.  (+info)

Determination of local anesthetics in illegal products using HPLC method with amperometric detection. (8/15)

An HPLC method with amperometric detection was developed for analysis of two local anesthetics (lidocaine and benzocaine) in products for delaying ejaculation illegally marketed in Polish sex shops. Chromatographic elution on an RP column C18 with mobile phase composed of acetate buffer with acetonitrile, provides an optimal separation not only of active substances but also electroactive preservatives which are occasionally added to cosmetic creams (methylparaben and propylparaben). Application of glassy carbon electrode as a working electrode and a procedure with pulsed potential waveforms enables a sensitive, accurate measurement within a relatively short analysis time (250 s). This method has been successfully employed for the determination of local anesthetics in products under investigation. The obtained results show that most samples contained therapeutic concentrations of lidocaine or benzocaine. According to European law, a sale of products containing lidocaine or benzocaine outside the pharmacy sector is forbidden.  (+info)

Introduction. Counterfeit medicines are found everywhere in the world ranging from random mixtures of harmful toxic substances to inactive and ineffective preparations. Some contain a declared, active ingredient and look so similar to the genuine product that they deceive health professionals as well as patients. But in every case, the source of a counterfeit medicine is unknown and its content unreliable. Counterfeit medicines are illegal in Malaysia. They can result in treatment failure or even death. Eliminating them is a considerable public health challenge.. Defination. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines counterfeits medicines as medicines that are deliberately and fraudulently mislabelled with respect to identity and/or source. Both branded and generic products are subject to counterfeiting. Counterfeit medicines may include products with the correct ingredients or with the wrong ingredients, without active ingredients, with insufficient or too much active ingredient, or with ...
The proliferation of counterfeit drugs on the global market and easy availability via online pharmacies is an increasing problem. The makers of counterfeit drugs have enjoyed and profited from loopholes in a system designed to deliver healthy medicines to those in need. The rising cost of prescription medications and the ubiquitous presence of online and overseas pharmacies means more people than ever are threatened by these counterfeiting operations.. GUANGZHOU: Five employees of Qiqihar No 2 Pharmaceutical Co Ltd were given jail terms ranging from four to seven Tuesday yesterday for producing and selling counterfeit drugs ...
According to Forbes, annual global sales of counterfeit drugs were estimated to have reached approximately $200 billion in 2011. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines counterfeit drugs as
A counterfeit medication or a counterfeit drug is a medication or pharmaceutical product which is produced and sold with the intent to deceptively represent its origin, authenticity or effectiveness. A counterfeit drug may contain inappropriate quantities of active ingredients, or none, may be improperly processed within the body (e.g., absorption by the body), may contain ingredients that are not on the label (which may or may not be harmful), or may be supplied with inaccurate or fake packaging and labeling, as is the case with homeopathic products. Counterfeit drugs are related to pharma fraud. Drug manufacturers and distributors are increasingly investing in countermeasures, such as traceability and authentication technologies, to try to minimise the impact of counterfeit drugs. Patients die after being given countereit drugs that do not cure their condition. Antibiotics with insufficient quantities of an active ingredient add to the problem of antibiotic resistance. Legitimate, correctly ...
For the criminals profits are much higher than in common drug trafficking. However, theft and resale of drugs and counterfeiting drugs are no longer the exclusive domain of dubious online providers. In German pharmacies, too, more and more stolen drugs, decanted, diluted and manipulated, are reappearing. In particular, more and more drugs are being stolen from Italian hospitals, such as the cancer drug Herceptin from Roche in 2014.. The manipulated Herceptin ampoules eventually turned up in German pharmacies. Counterfeiters were also able to smuggle these counterfeit drugs into Finlands and Great Britains legal distribution channels seemingly without any difficulty. And this means huge sums were falling into the counterfeiters hands: 150 mg of the complex preparation against breast cancer is worth about 850 €!. The cancer drug has a biological half-life of 2-12 days and must be transported at a temperature of -20°C. It is rather inconceivable that the counterfeiters have paid attention to ...

Although the exact number of rogue Internet pharmacies is unknown, one estimate suggests that there were over 36,000 in operation as of February 2014, and these rogue sites violate a variety of federal laws. Most operate from abroad, and many illegally ship prescription drugs into the United States that have not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), including drugs that are counterfeit or are otherwise substandard. Many also illegally sell prescription drugs without a prescription that meets federal and state requirements. Foreign rogue Internet pharmacies use sophisticated methods to evade scrutiny by customs officials and smuggle drugs into the country. Their operators also often violate other laws, including those related to fraud and money laundering.. Rogue Internet pharmacies are often complex, global operations, and federal agencies face substantial challenges investigating and prosecuting those involved. According to federal agency officials, piecing together rogue ...
Nuclear quadrupole resonance spectroscopy or NQR is a chemical analysis technique related to nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Unlike NMR, NQR transitions of nuclei can be detected in the absence of a magnetic field, and for this reason NQR spectroscopy is referred to as zero Field NMR. The NQR resonance is mediated by the interaction of the electric field gradient (EFG) with the quadrupole moment of the nuclear charge distribution. Because the EFG at the location of a nucleus in a given substance is determined primarily by the valence electrons involved in the particular bond with other nearby nuclei, the NQR frequency at which transitions occur is unique for a given substance. A particular NQR frequency in a compound or crystal is proportional to the product of the nuclear quadrupole moment, a property of the nucleus, and the EFG in the neighborhood of the nucleus. It is this product which is termed the nuclear quadrupole coupling constant for a given isotope in a material and can be found ...
The Partnership for Safe Medicines analyzed a report from the Group of 8 about rogue online drug outlets that shows 4,000 of the 18,000 outlets under investigation were tied in some way to Canada; 70,000 fake prescription drugs were discovered in the secure supply chain in the United Kingdom, and 30,000 doses remain unaccounted for; France confiscated 1.2 million doses of fake aspirin hidden in tea last year; Germany found more than 100 outlets offering illegally imported counterfeit cancer drugs in 2010; a Russian network called Glavmed is known for posing as Canadian drug stores and is one of the top-three sources of online antivirus scams.. The PSM includes such organizations as the National Association of Chain Drug Stores, the National Community Pharmacists Association, the American Pharmacists Association, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, the Generic Pharmaceutical Association and the Biotechnology Industry Organization, among others.. The risk of counterfeit and ...
The sale of counterfeit products is a problem in most countries. Every year, about 7% of world trade, valued at about 280 billion USD, is lost due to counterfeiting. In the information technology sector, products worth an estimated 20 billion USD are currently in circulation. But the huge financial losses incurred by manufacturers and individual customers as a result of the trafficking of fake goods are overshadowed by the tragic human costs: the pharmaceutical industry, and consequently the marketplace, are flooded with counterfeits. In this article, Dora Akunyili warns of the dangers of low public awareness of these potentially lethal products and describes the campaigns and strategies to protect the public in Nigeria and other countries in Africa. ...

The present invention is directed generally to a method and an improved system for detecting nitrogenous explosives or narcotics improved system for detecting nitrogenous explosives or narcotics by nuclear quadrupole resonance NQR, and more specifically, to a lower power method for detecting those materials. In order to limit the unrestricted flow of explosives and narcotics, it is designed to detect sub-kilogram quantities of those materials in monitoring stations. Most military explosives and narcotics share common features they are crystalline solids containing nitrogen. Presently, the explosive detections system and methods cannot reliably detect sub-kilogram quantities of military explosives against a background of more benign materials. In conventional vapor-based systems, dynamites and contaminated explosives may be detected. However, military explosives such as hexhydro-1,3,5-trinitro-s-triazene commonly referred to as RDX and 2,2-bisNITROXYMETHYL-1,3-propanediol, dinitrate commonly referred to
The exact number of counterfeit medicines produced/consumed each year is difficult to determine due to the usually illegitimate methods by which they are distributed. However, the scale of the problem can be represented by the fact that 20 million pills, bottles, and sachets of counterfeit medicines were seized in a five-month operation conducted by the International Criminal Police Organization in China and South-East Asia. ...
The World Health Organization secretariat record of a International Medical Products Anti-Counterfeiting Taskforce (IMPACT) meeting that took place 26 March are now available online.. Intellectual Property Watch reported on the meeting earlier, including statements made by stakeholders (IPW, WHO, 31 March 2010). The new documents are from the WHO secretariat and include the meeting agenda [pdf], a and list of participants.. They also include a presentation [pdf] on IMPACT, and overview [pdf] of the activities of IMPACTs working groups, and a WHO presentation [pdf] on counterfeit terminology. The terminology presentation does not include the results of a 2009 WHO survey on the national uses of the term counterfeit medicines, though it does include which countries have responded to a WHO letter inviting them to share that information (IPW, WHO, 11 December 2009).. The counterfeit issue has been a controversial one at the WHO, and is expected to be discussed at the May World Health Assembly. ...
In January 2009, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released its annual report on intellectual property rights (IPR) seizure statistics report for fiscal year 2008.. According to CBP, the value of all seized counterfeit and pirated products for the year ending September 30, 2008 was nearly $273 million, an increase of 38 percent over 2007, including a 43 percent increase in seizures of counterfeit electrical products during 2008 over 2007, with a total value of almost $23 million in 2008.. The category for electrical products represented 8 percent of all seizures and ranked fifth among all product categories of counterfeit goods seized. In 2007, the category for electrical products was the third ranked category of seizures but also represented eight percent of all seizures. Seizures of counterfeit batteries totaled $1.8 million. Other electrical articles seized include power adaptors, extension cords, circuit breakers, and lighting products. The customs data indicates that the ...
About half of Afghanistans pharmaceutical imports are smuggled and not subject to quality control, according to a recent report by the Independent Joint Anti-Corruption Monitoring and Evaluation Committee (MEC), a watchdog assembled by the international community and the Afghan government. The combined value of illegal and legal pharmaceuticals is $700m (£445m) to $880m.. Corruption at customs opened up the country to counterfeit, inferior medicine. Because of its proximity to the largely uncontrolled 1,600-mile border, the biggest market is Nangarhar province and its capital, Jalalabad, where fake drugs seamlessly enter the medicine stock, making it virtually impossible for non-specialists to distinguish between good and bad products.. When donkey carts and motorcycles kick up dust, the dealers cover the drugs with a piece of cloth, but otherwise do little to protect them against the heat and grime.. There is no policy regarding registration of medical companies in Afghanistan, and no ...
Pharmaceutical products can be of poor quality either because they contain zero correct active ingredient (referred to as counterfeit) or because they contain a non-zero but incorrect amount of the right active ingredient (referred to as substandard). While both types of poor-quality drugs can be dangerous, they differ in health consequence, price, and potential policy remedies. Assessing basic quality of 1437 samples of Ciprofloxacin from 18 low-to-middle-income countries, we aim to understand how price and non-price signals can help distinguish counterfeits, substandard drugs, and passing drugs. Following the Global Pharma Health Fund e.V. Minilab® protocol, we find 9.88% of samples have less than 80% of the correct active ingredient and 41.5% of these failures are counterfeits. Both product registration and chain affiliation of retailers are strong indicators of higher probability to pass in the Minilab test and higher retail price. Within quality failures, chain affiliation is more ...
Whats worse is that worldwide sales of counterfeit drugs are forecasted to reach $75 billion by 2010. This is, in part, due to weak regulatory systems in developing countries, where around 10 to 30 percent of drugs might be fake, according to the journal.. Counterfeiting may have caused the deaths of at least 81 patients in the U.S. after they were treated with a contaminated batch of heparin, a blood-thinning drug.. Last week the FDA told a congressional hearing it believed a dangerous contaminant found in batches of the heparin may have been deliberately added. The contaminant, traced back to a Chinese supplier, was structurally similar to heparin but 100 times cheaper.. The counterfeit drug trade was becoming more difficult to combat even before the tainted heparin was discovered, as criminals were using more sophisticated techniques to bypass standard laboratory tests. For instance, by adding cheaper substances that mimicked genuine drugs.. Substances used to taint medicines varied from ...

In closing, our daughter did remain in medical school as a result of our investigation into this matter, however many people would not have the resources to pursue the matter the way my wife and I did in this matter. It was embarassing to our daughter, stressful, expensive in getting the drug analyzed and she could have had her career destroyed due to this medication containing an ingredient that was not suppose to be in it.. I just urge everyone, if your meds are not working or you are seeing some side effects that are not normal, you may want to get it checked out. Twenty to thirty percent of prescriptions filled in the country today can be a counterfeit drug. And if you order through the internet, you stand a 50% chance of getting a counterfeit drug ...
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has asked hospitals and pharmacies to recall batches of rosuvastatin - a drug to control cholesterol marketed as Crestor - which the agency said had been mixed with counterfeit drugs. FDA official Chih Lan-hui (遲蘭慧) said that global biopharmaceutical company AstraZeneca received a report from a pharmacist in New Taipei City last month that its Crestor 10mg film-coated tablets might contain counterfeit drugs in similar packaging. The company confirmed the product was fake after sending a sample abroad to be examined. The FDA received the report from AstraZeneca on Thursday and the New Taipei District Prosecutors Office

Most people think of crime as something thats easily noticeable. However, consumer goods company Procter & Gamble recently identified 50 different crime rings that deal in an unexpected market: selling counterfeit laundry detergent. The counterfeit dealers advertise five-gallon buckets of popular brands like Tide for an unbelievably cheap price ... despite the fact that Procter & Gamble doesnt even offer their products in that size!. The criminals behind these operations make their money by buying buckets of fake detergent for about $5 each from counterfeiters before selling them to unsuspecting consumers for up to five times the price. But its still detergent, right? While it might pass for the real thing by look and smell, theyre far from the same quality. When tested, the counterfeit detergents are noticeably less effective than the authentic products. Even scarier is the fact that the chemicals used to make the knock-off detergents arent easily identified.. The comparatively low risk of ...
Unique encoding of each of a substantial number of distribution video copies of a program such as a motion picture is produced by altering the images slightly at several pre-selected locations in the program in a uniquely coded pattern. Suspected counterfeits can be compared with an unaltered master video to determine the encoded number for the copy which was counterfeited to enable tracking the source of the counterfeit. Preferably, each frame of several whole scenes is altered at each location by shifting an image so as to make the alterations largely undetectable by counterfeiters but easily detected by comparison with an unaltered master video. Artifacts are inserted in patterns representing a unique number for the program. These supplement the encoding by alteration of images and gives added means to aid in tracing counterfeit copies.
5 ways the fight against counterfeit electronic components is evolving. Most electronics industry professionals agree that the industry is more vigilant and doing a better job of keeping counterfeit electronic components off the plant floor than they were just five or 10 years ago. But they also say that counterfeiters are getting better at their craft and that detection is becoming even harder-key reasons suppliers cant weaken their resolve in the fight against counterfeit parts. A host of recent events, including newly released standards and a long-awaited update to the federal governments requirements for companies who supply equipment containing electronic components to the government, is keeping everyone in the channel on their toes.. Overall, the supply chain is doing a better job of keeping this stuff out as much as they can-out of the end users supply chains, says Mark Snider, president of ERAI, an association representing independent distributors of electronic components. But its ...
It is illegal. It is the same as producing counterfeit one-hundred dollar bills. The legality of it depends on its intended use. If they are being made for any kind of fraudulent purpose, then it is very illegal and you could spend many years in a Federal prison. If they are made as a novelty or bullion item, and clearly show a difference from a normal coin (such as a different size or color, or with the word COPY on it), then there is no problem. Since the question asked about COUNTERFEIT nickels, its obvious that they do not mean novelty items. As the first answer said, it is just as illegal as making your own 100 dollar bills. In fact, what may have been the largest counterfeit operation by an individual in the US, in the number of pieces if not in total amount, involved Jefferson Nickels. The story is buried somewhere in my past issues of The Numismatist or Numismatic News and IF I ever run across it Ill post the details here.
THE INTERNET is often a source for goods with prices lower than brick-and-mortar shops. But while buying books or clothes online can save money, when it comes to medication, consumers should shop only on legal websites, as otherwise they may be putting their health at risk, experts say.
The adulteration and fraudulent manufacture of medicines is an old problem, vastly aggravated by modern manufacturing and trade. In the last decade, impotent antimicrobial drugs have compromised the treatment of many deadly diseases in poor countries. More recently, negligent production at a Massachusetts compounding pharmacy sickened hundreds of Americans. While the national drugs regulatory authority (hereafter, the regulatory authority) is responsible for the safety of a countrys drug supply, no single country can entirely guarantee this today.. The once common use of the term counterfeit to describe any drug that is not what it claims to be is at the heart of the argument. In a narrow, legal sense a counterfeit drug is one that infringes on a registered trademark. The lay meaning is much broader, including any drug made with intentional deceit. Some generic drug companies and civil society groups object to calling bad medicines counterfeit, seeing it as the deliberate conflation of public ...

The scale of and risk posed by counterfeiting in the electronics industry can be well demonstrated with one example from the Senate Armed Services Committee, which a few years ago uncovered over 1 million counterfeit electronic parts in its supply chains. Counterfeit products were found in computers, in special operations helicopters, in surveillance planes, and even in missiles. As Senator, and former presidential candidate, John McCain said at the time this risk[ed] our security and the lives of the men and women who protect it.. And it goes beyond anecdotal evidence. While the nature of this being an illegal market means its difficult to put an exact figure on the size of the problem, back in 2002 the FBI estimated that the issue lost US companies alone nearly 20 billion a year, and today figures routinely cited for the global cost are in the hundreds of billions of dollars. And the problem of electronic component counterfeiting, like general counterfeiting, is getting worse.. In 2010, a ...

Similarly the amount of counterfeit alcoholic product seized fell 66% from 293.4 litres to 99.9 litres according to the latest figures from the Revenue Commissioners.. This compares to 194.25 litres in 2013 and 86.66 litres in 2014.. When it comes to alcohol, clear spirits - mainly vodka - remains the most counterfeit type of alcohol, produced illicitly, bottled and packaged to resemble the genuine product.. In many cases, the alcohol is sourced from the world of industrial alcohol which often contains high quantities of methanol and isopropyl alcohol, commonly found in nail varnish remover. These dangerous substances can cause breathing difficulties, liver damage and blindness.. When the Revenue Commissioners detain such products, theyre referred to the State Laboratory for analysis and to the manufacturer for confirmation of authenticity/non-authenticity.. Revenue would like to remind anyone that if businesses or members of the public have any information regarding the smuggling or sale of ...

07/28/2008. I process Visa and MasterCard chargebacks for several financial institutions and I am currently working on a case where the financial institution is not wanting to provide the cardholder provisional credit. The cardholder was making several auto fuel purchases in Florida and was called around the same time to verify transactions on her account. No one knows exactly what was said to verify the charges, but the cardholder agreed the gas charges were hers. Unknowingly to the cardholder there was actually counterfeit activity going on at gas stations in Massachusetts, so after her card was unblocked the fraud continued to happen. The financial institution has decided since the cardholder agreed that the original charges were valid and the card was unblocked for more counterfeit transactions to post, they will not be giving the cardholder credit because the fraud alert company tried to stop a further loss, but the cardholder insisted it wasnt fraud. Since I am the fraud processor, the ...
In Fiscal Year 2020 (FY20), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) seized nearly 830,000 pounds of drugs. CBP officers nationwide intercepted shipments of cocaine, methamphetamine, fentanyl, marijuana and other common narcotics. CBP Officers in Cincinnati alone seized 5,619 pounds, or 2.8 tons, of narcotics being shipped through the Port of Cincinnati. The port uses a combination of technology and service canines to stop the trafficking of drugs. Shipments originated from various overseas locations as well as within the U.S.. Counterfeit prescription medications and schedule 3 and 4 narcotics made up the largest number of seizures in FY20. Counterfeit prescriptions may be manufactured using incorrect or harmful ingredients. This medicine is then packaged and labeled to look like the real thing. Counterfeit medicines are unsafe because they may not work and could be harmful.. Methamphetamine was the largest intercepted drug. Officers in Cincinnati seized 1,020 pounds of Methamphetamine. ...

Last week some of us had the pleasure of visiting Boston for the 2012 Workshop on Capillary-based Microfluidics for Bioanalysis, hosted by Dr. Cathie Klapperichs group at Boston University. As those of you who were there or watched the live stream [1] know, there was an incredible line-up of some of the best ideas that paper microfluidics has to offer. This community is using these paper technologies to address a huge range of problems, from identification of counterfeit drugs [2] to inexpensive solar power [3]. Inexpensive and easy-to-use devices are improving our ability to detect antibiotic resistance [4] and monitor water quality [5], while on-paper electrochemical detection [6] and nucleic acid amplification [7] increase the sensitivity achievable in these paperfluidic devices. We heard about the challenges and successes involved when testing new devices in the field [8] and got to experience do-it-yourself fabrication of little devices [9] and tests for TB drug adherence [10]..

Studies really only give a snapshot of the situation as counterfeiters are extremely flexible in the way they mimic products and avoid detection, says Kopp.. There are no accurate data that accurately measure the scale of this vast, sophisticated and lucrative business, but were talking about big quantities seized and sophisticated criminal networks, says Interpols Plançon, who co-chairs IMPACTs working group on enforcement.. The range of counterfeit products reaching markets has also broadened with the increased commercial use of the Internet to provide a dizzying array of both branded and generic drugs. In more than 50% of cases, medicines purchased over the Internet from illegal sites that conceal their physical address have been found to be counterfeit, according to WHO.. In a shocking development, it was discovered relatively recently that counterfeit versions of lifesaving prescription medicines for cancer and serious cardiovascular diseases are also being sold to consumers ...
The FDA reports that a counterfeit version of the widely used attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) drug Adderall is being sold and purchased on the Internet. The counterfeit pills are designed to look like the 30-milligram tablets produced by Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, but, according to the FDA, preliminary laboratory tests revealed that the counterfeit tablets contained the wrong active ingredients.
The constant propaganda to promote synthetic foods by the interests who seem to own our Federal Trade Commission and the FDA lock, stock, and barrel is a very interesting example of how corruption of government officials takes place. The recent Welch case in the FDA is the story of a public official hired to protect the public but who does the opposite and for a fat price protects outside interests. When caught red-handed, Welch obtained a doctors certificate stating his health would not permit questioning. (Further details in the 1960 Saturday Review files.). Counterfeit money, counterfeit food, and counterfeit vitamins all offer fat profits for the racketeer. When these racketeers are so powerful that they can use the Federal Trade Commission and the Food and Drug Administration to protect their death-dealing rackets,. it is time for a congressional investigation-and time for a few heads to roll.. As heretofore stated in these pages, food factors must be made by the anabolic reactions of ...
Representing plaintiff on behalf of a class of visual copyright holders (e.g., artists) against Alibaba companies for contributory and vicarious copyright infringement. Alibaba is a Chinese company that operates a number of e-commerce web platforms similar to Amazon. The Alibaba IPO was the largest in history, and it is one of the top 10 most valuable companies in the world. Hundreds of thousands of counterfeit products, including artwork, are sold over the Alibaba platforms. The case involves counterfeit goods originating in China, which touches on significant U.S. trade issues and addresses whether companies like Alibaba can hide behind the Digital Millennium Copyright Acts safe harbor while knowingly providing platforms for and facilitating the sale of counterfeit goods. The case addresses the use of class action litigation to enforce copyrights, and class-wide damages claims could total hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars.. Breach of anti-piracy and confidentiality covenants ...
Counterfeit parts have the potential to cause a serious disruption to Department of Defense (DoD) supply chains, delay ongoing missions, and affect the integrity of weapons systems (Government Accountability Office [GAO], 2010). Incredibly, the number of counterfeit parts in electronic military systems more than doubled between 2005 and 2008, rising from 3,868 incidents to 9,356 incidents (U.S. Department of Commerce, 2010). The range of counterfeited goods is wide, and it is growing. The rise of e-commerce, extended international supply chains, stronger reliance on overseas manufacturing, and, more recently, the global economic recession have significantly contributed to the proliferation of counterfeit goods (Knock Offs Catch On, 2010). Almost anything can be counterfeited, including fasteners used on aircraft and materials used in body armor and engine mounts. In some instances, lives may be at stake.. ...

In the 2 weeks following the March 25th health alert Vo et al reported another seven patients who had ingested illicit or street Norco and had presented to multiple Bay Area hospitals with various signs and symptoms of opioid intoxication. Serum from these 7 patients were analyzed using LC/MS and fentanyl as detected ranging from 1.6 to 10.1 ng/ml with analgesic therapeutic serum levels being reported between 0.6 to 3 ng/ml. An illicit Norco tablet obtained from one of the patients in this case series was analyzed, again by LC/MS, and contained 3.5 mg of fentanyl, 2.3 mg of promethazine, 39.2 mg of acetaminophen, and trace amounts of cocaine. Fentanyl is not currently manufactured as an oral tablet. Additionally, the imprint on the counterfeit tablet was similar to that seen on legitimately manufactured Norco.. This is not the first report of counterfeit tablets containing fentanyl. Arens et al reported a series of ten patients including two deaths after ingestion of counterfeit Xanax ...
