The FDA drug approval process provides a review of product-specific information that is critical to ensuring the safety and efficacy of a finished drug product. However, there are prescription drugs currently available in the marketplace even though they have not been approved by the FDA. Many health care providers are unaware of the unapproved status of some drugs that are illegally marketed by the pharmaceutical companies and unknowingly prescribe these drug products. The FDA has serious concerns that drugs marketed without required FDA approval may not meet modern standards for safety, effectiveness, quality and labeling.
Numerous pharmaceutical companies repeatedly deceived the Government by falsely certifying that their unapproved drugs had passed the requisite FDA tests for safety and effectiveness. In addition to the serious public health concerns, the pharmaceutical companies wrongfully received millions of dollars from the Government for unapproved drugs prescribed to Medicaid patients. Lawyers in the Consumer Fraud Section at Beasley Allen represent the State of Louisiana in a lawsuit against pharmaceutical companies that illegally marketed their unapproved drugs, certified that their unapproved drugs had passed the requisite FDA tests and met Medicaid drug approval standards.
