WASHINGTON, Dec. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower says, "We are urging a physician or a medical device/pharmaceutical representative to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if they have well documented proof a company is selling non-FDA approved products to their patients-especially Medicare patients.
"Recently a whistleblower received $5 million dollars for this type of information. In the instance of off labeled drugs-drugs not approved for new uses-what could possibly go wrong? In recent years, over $13 billion in fines have been paid by major drug companies to settle lawsuits against them for their fraudulent marketing practices, including off-label promotion of their drugs/devices not approved by the FDA." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
In November 2016, the Department of Justice announced it had come to terms with a medical device company for selling their non-FDA approved product. In this instance the medical device was to be used as a drug-delivery device in combination with chemotherapy drugs, despite the lack of FDA approval as a drug-device combination product. In December 2009, the medical device maker filed an application with FDA for approval of their device as a drug-eluting bead combination product. However, FDA informed the company that it was not accepting the application because clinical studies did not provide adequate evidence of a therapeutic benefit.
Nonetheless, the device company routinely advised healthcare providers that their product provided "better" or "superior" therapy for certain types of cancer when, in fact, there was insufficient clinical evidence to support these claims. The medical device company will pay more than $36 million to resolve criminal and civil liability. http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower: Do not go to the government first if you want to become a whistleblower: The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Major 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 reward. Do not try to force a medical device or pharmaceutical company or individual to come clean on off labeling their products."
