New community pharmacy foundation to benefit from lawsuits against drug companies
American Journal of Health System Pharmacy 1999 Oct 1; 56:1912, 1915


The establishment of educational foundations and programs by the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) and the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) using funds acquired in 2 separate settlements of lawsuits against the pharmaceutical industry is reported; the first suit was by a chain pharmacy against Knoll Pharmaceutical Company alleging that the firm suppressed a clinical study demonstrating that generic levothyroxine (Synthroid) products were equivalent to the brand name product, and the second was a class action suit brought by independent and chain pharmacies against several manufacturers alleging price fixing of brand name drugs.
