Michael A. Santoro and Thomas M. Gorrie have invited representatives of government and NGOs, top industry executives, doctors, and scholars to share their views on the most vital and controversial moral issues facing the pharmaceutical industry today. Where do the lines begin and end between the pharmaceutical industrys responsibility to society and to its own profit/loss considerations? This question is considered across a range of activities, including research and clinical trials, drug pricing, patent protection, and advertising and marketing to doctors and patients.

The contributions in this book by leading figures in industry, government, NGOs, the medical community, and academia discuss and propose solutions to the ethical dilemmas of drug industry behavior. They examine such aspects as the role of intellectual property rights and patent protection, the moral and economic requisites of research and clinical trials, drug pricing, and marketing.
