So, for now, the best thing to do to ensure that this important industry continues to create jobs and producing life-saving devices is to delay this unwise tax," said Sen. Franken.

    I am interested in learning more about the approval process for drugs and medical devices in Canada vs the USA. New and emerging companies would benefit from this.

    • In Canada, everything has to go through a rigorous testing process before it can be released to the public, but you can get generic versions of drugs much sooner than in the USA; I think it s twenty years after proprietary version is released.

    Jul 02, 2013 by Carlos | Posted in Current Events

    On average, people live about 5years longer in Japan than people in the USA. They spend half of what the USA spends on healthcare. Is it the american culture? Is it poor doctors? I think it is a combination of poor doctors and the american culture. I have visited too many doctors who have recommended expensive, unnecessary medications and medical devices. In the USA, eating out is not equated with eating healthy.
