JPAG - PAST MEETINGS

Thursday 16th June 2011
Analytical methods to combat the counterfeiting of medicines
Sub-standard and counterfeit medicines are a great threat to public health. They may cause death due to the absence of active drug, as found in some vaccines and antibiotics, or because of the presence of a toxic material, such as the substitution of diethylene glycol for glycerol.

Counterfeit medicines are estimated to constitute more than 10% of the global medicines market and in some developing countries it is thought to be as high as 50%. One prediction is that global counterfeit drug sales will reach $ 75 billion by 2011.

This one-day symposium looked at modern analytical methods to detect counterfeit medicines and the UK government’s response to the problem. It was the second symposium in the current series and demonstrates the continuing commitment of JPAG to address the issues in this important topic.
