WASHINGTON, March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are urging a pharmaceutical rep, a medical doctor or a healthcare insider to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if they possess proof a drug company is knowingly selling a drug as being effective when in fact it is either ineffective or it is too dangerous to be sold to the public.
"The whistleblower reward potential for this type of information can be huge. In a recent example a whistleblower was awarded $10 million dollars for information exactly like this. In this instance-it was a pharmaceutical company employee who blew the whistle. If you are sitting on a potentially winning lotto ticket-why not at least find out what it could be worth?" http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
In June of 2016 the Department of Justice received a $67-million-dollar settlement for misleading statements they had made about the effectiveness of their pharmaceutical product. The settlement resolves allegations that, between January 2006 and December 2011, the pharmaceutical company made misleading representations to physicians and other health care providers about the effectiveness of their drug to treat certain patients with non-small cell lung cancer, when there was little evidence to show that the drug was effective to treat those patients unless they also had never smoked or had a mutation in their epidermal growth factor receptor.
In the opinion of the Corporate Whistleblower Center so of the all-time worst pharmaceutical drugs or medical device products that should have never seen the marketplace include:
- According to the News Program 60 Minutes-the blood thinner drug Trasylol killed at least 22,000 US citizens. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/one-thousand-lives-a-month/
- All metal hip implants introduced in the early 2000's to US citizens. "What could possibly go wrong with two pieces of metal inside someone's hip interacting with each other? Currently about 500,000 US citizens have all metal hip implants. The class actions that focused on identifying victims of a failed hip implant have identified less than 10% of the probable victims of an all metal hip implant."
- "Transvaginal mesh products were sold to medical doctors as a miracle cure for incontinence, for hernias, pretty much you name it. The problem-once the mesh product gets into a person's body it is no longer pliable or easy to remove."
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you want to become a whistleblower who gets rewarded: The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It's a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information either. Any type of public revelation of a whistleblower's information could destroy the prospect for a financial reward. Do not try to force a medical device or pharmaceutical company to come clean about the ineffectiveness of their pharmaceutical or medical device product or products."
