E-drug: Philippines Generics law (cont'd)

Dear Dr Dalmacion,

Many thanks for your reply. I would still like to hear the views from
Pharmacists and Ministry officials working in third world countries to
see whether they have data on the costs of validation, both analytical
and process and stability data. As the governments in third word
countries put pressure on pharmaceutical companies to keep the costs
down by buying raw material and excipients from a cheaper source. In
my experience when one adds the cost of stability testing (both in
financial and manpower terms) the new source is not as cheap as it
first appears to be.

Sincerely yours
