For all the ruckus generated by the fake Avastin controversy last year, federal prosecutors late last week failed to obtain a one-year prison sentence for a former salesman for a Canadian pharmacy who had already pleaded guilty to a felony for selling misbranded and unapproved cancer drugs. Rather than spend time in jail, Paul Bottomley will serve six months of house arrest and five years of probation. The sentencing amounts to a setback to federal authorities who hoped to make an example of Bottomley as the FDA accelerates efforts to thwart the spread of counterfeit medicines and secure the pharmaceutical supply chain.
