Pharmaceutical manufacturers may be forced to pay 5M-RUB fines for unreliable drug information

The initiative to impose administrative sanctions for providing unreliable drug information in the process of registration/reregistration of a maximum sales price of a VED-listed drug triggers debates in the pharma community.
