Here of late, we hear about the big daisy chains of subsidiaries being built by insurance companies and here’s one more that consults with getting drugs and devices approved through the FDA.  This is not brand new and has been a imagesubsidiary for a while but with all the other entities being taken over, such as HMOs and IPAs this goes for a good mention as when you look at the number of companies who own other companies today it get mind boggling and with my blog here I try to point areas as such out so when making a purchase you know who’s bottom the money fulfills.  The subsidiary is actually under the Optum umbrella which falls under the United name.  The company files and maintains clinical trial information for investigational drugs. 

Not only in the US, but they are also involved according to their website in Canada and Asia as well.  When I think of Asia I wonder how their China Gate subsidiary plays in here too as their goals are to promote the development of drugs and medical devices in China for distribution and sales throughout the world, which included the US I believe.  Gee it almost sounds like between all the subsidiaries they can start with a submission for a new drug and carry it through all the way down to what another subsidiary will pay for it once FDA approved right and use bank they own for all the money?  BD

Despite the fact that numerous patients and doctors accept that the security and viability of new drugs are well comprehended, the nature of clinical trial confirmation the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) utilizes for endorsements differs generally, new research demonstrates. thanks a lot!~ Tina West
