Sort of. The main problem is the slight modification of the drug to extend the patent. I think that's what happened with Humira. The "paying off other companies" methodology isn't very common, as far as I know.




Here's another article: https://www.cnn.com/2018/06/29/healt...nts/index.html

Funnily enough, my problem is with this "Questcor shocked the medical community when, on August 27, 2007, it raised the price overnight from $1,600 to $23,000 a vial" more than the aggressive marketing and outreach that the new company is doing.
