PRESCRIPTION FOR PROFITS: HOW THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY BANKROLLED THE UNHOLY MARRIAGE BETWEEN SCIENCE AND BUSINESS., Marsa, Linda.

Author Name    Marsa, Linda.

Title   PRESCRIPTION FOR PROFITS: HOW THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY BANKROLLED THE UNHOLY MARRIAGE BETWEEN SCIENCE AND BUSINESS.

Publisher    Scribner, (New York, 1997).

Seller ID   16484

304 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs. "...tracks the rise and fall of research science as told through the spectacular growth of the pharmaceutical industry. As Marsa shows, the achievements of American science during the postwar era were stellar: the cure for polio, the cracking of the genetic code, the pioneering drug therapies. In the early 1970s, though, such scientists as Herbert Boyer discerned the rewards of launching their own companies. He led an exodus of his colleagues into the burgeoning biotechnology industry - at first a trickle, then a flood. The major companies grew filthy rich and politically powerful, particularly because of deregulation during the Reagan administration. The lure of huge profits dramatically changed medical research with ramifications that continue to affect our lives profoundly. From Nixon's war on cancer to the current AIDS crisis to the future of human gene therapy, this marriage between medical research and corporate money has transformed our nation's health, and not always for the public's good..." Tiny dent to top edge of boards, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, small crease at bottom edge of approx. pages 30 to 80. Dust jacket has minor rubbing, light wrinkling to edges - a little more at top/bottom of spine. VG+/VG
