Ineffective self-regulation in the pharmaceutical and medical devices industries


Although the pharmaceutical business itself is probably the most truly global of all industries, drug controls are managed on a very insular, national level, as though the rest of the world did not exist. Drugs are sold globally, but withdrawn nationally. Doctors in each country usually have to discover problems with a drug independently of those in other countries.
