PROCRIT: WARNINGS
ALL MEMBERS,

NEW PROCRIT WARNINGS HAVE BEEN ISSUED:

Johnson & Johnson receives US government subpoena on Procrit
Candace Hoffmann

10/04/2004

Johnson & Johnson said late Friday that its Ortho Biotech unit received a subpoena from the US Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services seeking documents about its sales and marketing of Procrit, as reported in news sources. The drugmaker said it is responding to the subpoena and is cooperating with federal officials.

Earlier this year, the New York State Attorney General requested documents pertaining to possible off-label marketing of several Johnson & Johnson drugs including anaemia treatment Procrit (erythropoietin), as reported in CNN Money and Yahoo Finance.

In 2003, sales of Procrit were $2.8 billion. In the second quarter of this year, Procrit's sales fell to $582 million in light of increased competition from rival products including Amgen's Aranesp, as reported in CNN Money.

Johnson & Johnson's Ortho Biotech unit markets Procrit under a licensing agreement with Amgen, which manufactures it.

So far, all I have been able to find out is that the gov has questions about the sales and marketing of Procrit, not the use and safety of the drug itself.  Anyone else??
