Report: Drug company faked cancer patients to sell drug - CNNPolitics
Insys got around this by finding calculated ways for its employees to create the impression on the phone calls that the answer was yes, they did have cancer, without explicitly saying so, according to the report.
A recording of a such a call, obtained by McCaskill’s investigators and released Wednesday, shows the wordplay Insys employees engaged in.
The call involves a New Jersey woman named Sarah Fuller, who did not have cancer but was nevertheless prescribed Subsys by her doctor. Fuller died last year of a Subsys overdose, and state authorities later petitioned to have her doctor’s license temporarily suspended.
