CNBC.com Examines Counterfeit Pharmaceuticals in Special Report

October 6, 2011

In a special report, CNBC.com examines "the world of counterfeit pharmaceuticals, from the dangers they pose and where they're made, to what is being done to combat them." The news service notes that "[i]n some countries, counterfeit prescription drugs comprise as much as 70 percent of the drug supply and have been responsible for thousands of deaths in some of the world's most impoverished nations, according to the World Health Organization (WHO)," and adds that counterfeit drugs also affect people in developed nations (Toscano, 10/4).
