How Counterfeiters Are Contaminating America's Drug SupplyBook - 2005
Stolen, compromised, and counterfeit medicine increasingly makes its way into a poorly regulated distribution system-where it may reach unsuspecting patients who stake their lives on its effectiveness. Investigative medical reporter Eban's exploration of America's secret ring of drug counterfeiters takes us to Florida, where a team of investigators follows the trail of medicine stolen in a seemingly minor break-in as it funnels into a sprawling national network of drug polluters. Their pursuit stretches from a strip joint in South Miami to the halls of Congress as they battle entrenched political interests and uncover an increasing threat to America's health.--From publisher description.
