Study Finds Quality Problems in WHO-Approved Drugs Made in China
Chinese-made drugs approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) are seven times more likely to be substandard, degraded or counterfeit than similar Indian-made drugs approved by the WHO, according to a new study. The study, published in Research and Reports in Tropical Medicine, looked at 2,652 essential drugs to treat malaria, tuberculosis and bacterial infections from 11 African cities, three Indian cities and five other cities in mid-income countries.
