MARBLEHEAD, MA USA -- PHARMA UPDATE NEWS SERVICE(TM) -- JUNE 7, 2006: Since Schering-Plough's advisory opinion in April, the questions about patient assistance programs continue to swirl. It's the hottest legal and policy issue in the pharmaceutical and bio industries and CMS, OIG, charities, patients, and manufacturers are at the center of it. Given the recent dialogue, is there an untapped course for manufacturers? Can a company's government affairs and policy leaders change the law? How? What new legal potholes will emerge? What opportunities exist for small and mid-size companies?

The speakers are David Ralston, Legal Director for Schering-Plough, Dara Corrigan, former HHS Acting Inspector General and Pamela Pepe, former Policy Director at Serono.
