The set of drug companies, supposedly in competition with one another, but who have interlocking interests and personnel, and who operate a revolving door with their supposed regulatory agencies, now long since captured.

Big pharma is a shorthand for referring to the large pharmaceutical companies.

Advertising

Advertising and marketing is so important to big pharma that "9 out of the top 10 industry leaders spend more on marketing than on research and development".[1]

Legal cases of note

Those who are adversely affected by medications, even when not warned about them on the label, were determined in a 5-4 decision by the US Supreme Court not to be liable to financial compensation.[2]

Lobbying

Big Pharma spends much more on governmental lobbying and on "public relations" than any other industry.[3]

Manipulation of studies

Pharma companies manipulate studies for publication by choosing and excluding parameters beforehand, thus framing the findings:

  • the medication will be tested against another one, from which is known, that it is inferior in it's effectiveness
  • the medication will be tested against another one, which is administered in lesser dosage than to be effective
  • the medication will be tested against another one, which is administered in higher dosage to let the own medication appear less toxic
  • the formulation of questions beforehand will be done in such a way, that positive results are guaranteed
  • only positive results will be publicized, which may be clinical endpoints like: survival time, pain relief, blood pressure - but relative risk or absolute risk may not not change and are not mentioned

In 2015, Richard Horton, editor of the prestigious medical journal the Lancet, wrote bluntly of these problems. A symposium—on the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research, held at the Wellcome Trust in London discussed "one of the most sensitive issues in science today: the idea that something has gone fundamentally wrong with one of our greatest human creations." Pointing out that "part of the problem is that no-one is incentivised to be right. Instead, scientists are incentivised to be productive and innovative" he also stated[4][5]:

“Much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.”
Richard Horton (2015)  [6]


Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and was longtime Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ), considered to be another one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world, has made similar observations[7]:

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.”
Marcia Angell (2009)  [8]

John le CarréBig Pharma is also engaged in the deliberate seduction of the medical profession, country by country, worldwide. It is spending a fortune on influencing, hiring and purchasing academic judgement to a point where, in a few years' time, if Big Pharma continues unchecked on its present happy path, unbought medical opinion will be hard to find.”John le Carré
Event 201“[M]y team has been monitoring the public response. And on various social media channels and cable networks, there's been some conspiracy theories that are around about the potential that pharmaceutical companies or the UN have released this for their own benefit... if conspiracy theories like this come up already, so we are on the edge of hysterical reactions.”18 October 2019
Ivermectin“I want to bring attention to two critical deficits in our national treatment response that has made this hearing necessary in the first place. Besides the early interest and research into hydroxychloroquine, we can find no other significant efforts to research the use of any other already existing, safe, low-cost therapeutic agents. Seemingly the only research and treatment focus that we have observed on a national scale is with novel or high-cost pharmaceutically engineered products”Dr. Pierre KoryDecember 2020
