I do have some knowledge about pricing of Rx drugs and fraud. If anybody feels like reading up, this is a very interesting case from about 10 years ago where TAP got caught red handed giving kick-backs and "marketing the spread"

A lot has been put in place since to deter these conflicts of interest, both legally (OIG) and regulatorily (FDA) and also by the industry groups like PHRMA and AMA.

As a regulatory person whose job it is to help companies do the right thing, this is very sad for me to see. More info coming....
