" I can buy foreign antibiotics for 90% discount to US counterpart in the NYC pharmacy with a prescription from the US doctor. I didn't know you could do that until several months ago. "
That works for off-patent drugs (very few antibiotics are still under patent). There you have 3 tiers: the branded product is still sold, then there are US-label generices and there are outside-US-label generics. The OUS-label generics take a bit of play-acting to make legal-ish.
In the case of under-patent drugs, the patent owner controls both domestic supply and importation. Any non-royalty-paid dose is plenty illegal enough to cost any physician who knowingly uses it his license. Hell, it's illegal enough so side effects are probably aggravated battery.
Give it 3 years and maybe a black market in pirfenidone might be financially important. But only extreme optimists expect pirfenidone to have a market lifetime much over 3 years. It really is a lousy drug.
The issue is not black market. The issue is global market. If you don't allow market in EU or US, India or China steps in. It's a completely environment then your run of the mill smuggling or black market. It's legit and is on an international scale. Cipla is a real pharma company. You have real Indian doctors who can fill the prescription for you once the EU accepts the drug. If it was PFE or MRK, you wouldn't have Cipla doing the generic before the brand name comes out. The whole industry is screwed because of that, not just ITMN. Smaller companies are just more exposed to this, but it happens across the whole pharma spectrum. I can buy foreign antibiotics for 90% discount to US counterpart in the NYC pharmacy with a prescription from the US doctor. I didn't know you could do that until several months ago.
If you really think the chinese bottle manufacturer will deliver for $22 why not try ordering some. You may be surprised to learn the Web price is somewhat inaccurate. And you may want to consider having someone conduct some purity testing. Furthermore, if this were the true cost, short ITMN because once the product is approved in the EU lots of small groups will be competing - no patent protection in that market.
