China Working to Clean Up Pharmaceutical Industry

Comments Off

China’s scandal ridden pharmaceutical industry is undergoing a massive clean up effort by China’s version of the FDA. China has been plagued by health scares due to bad drugs, false advertising, and unlicensed drug manufacturers. One Chinese health official, Zheng Xiaoyu, was sentenced to death last May for taking bribes. In one case of bad drugs, dozens of people in Panama died as a result of taking medicines manufactured with a Chinese-made toxin. The effort was supposed to last six months but has been extended to 18 months due to the depth and widespread nature of the corruption.
