The truth about the drug companies : how they deceive us and what to do about it by Marcia Angell( Book )
42 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 2,903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Angell watched drug companies stray from their original mission of discovering and manufacturing useful drugs and instead become vast marketing machines with unprecedented control over their own fortunes. She saw them gain nearly limitless influence over medical research, education, and how doctors do their jobs. She sympathized as the American public, particularly the elderly, struggled and increasingly failed to meet spiraling prescription drug prices
Science on trial : the clash of medical evidence and the law in the breast implant case by Marcia Angell( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 1,047 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When the FDA banned silicone gel-filled breast implants in 1992, it was responding to mounting concerns that they caused autoimmune and connective tissue disease. The ban triggered a torrent of litigation, as women by the thousands sued breast-implant manufacturers. Sympathetic juries awarded huge damages, leading to a $4.25 billion class-action settlement that still wasn't large enough to cover all the claims. Shockingly, rigorous scientific studies of breast implants

Truth about the drug companies by Marcia Angell( Recording )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this explosive expose of the drug companies and how they are ripping us off, Marcia Angell, M.D., a doctor, medical journalist, and a former editor of the respected New England Journal of Medicine, reveals the many ways in which the pharmaceutical industry has moved away from its original purpose of finding and producing useful new drugs. Now primarily a marketing machine that produces drugs of questionable benefit, the industry uses its wealth and power to co-opt such institutions as the U.S. Congress, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), academic medical centers, as well as the medical profession. In spite of a lack of innovative drugs and continuously growing prices, the drug companies invest most of their time and money in marketing, legal maneuvers to extend patient rights, and government lobbying to prevent price regulation

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wendell Potter, a former insurance executive turned public health advocate, sits down with Moyers to discuss what reforms are still left in President Obama's health care reform bill and what he likes about the legislation. Then Marcia Angell of Harvard Medical School, one of the foremost champions of a single-payer nationalized health system, describes why she thinks the debate over reform requires a fresh look at the economics and delivery of the care promised in the bill

Bill Moyers journal ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The ongoing debate over healthcare reform has made a battle zone of Capitol Hill. In this edition of the Journal, Bill Moyers and expert analysts Trudy Lieberman and Marci Angell examine the partisan messages that have emerged from the crossfire to gauge who is playing politics to manipulate-- and possibly derail-- meaningful reform. The Journal then revists the question of how popular right-wing media personalities affect the nation's political discourse with a report on what role hate speech may have played in last year's tragic shooting at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church."--Container
Big bucks, big pharma marketing disease & pushing drugs ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Focusing on the pharmaceutical industry's marketing practices, media scholars and health professionals discuss the ways in which direct-to-consumer (DTC) pharmaceutical advertising glamorizes and normalizes the use of prescription medication, and works in tandem with promotion to doctors. Combined, these industry practices shape how both patients and doctors understand and relate to disease and treatment

Bill Moyers journal ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this edition of the Journal, Bill Moyers sits down with Robert Wright, author of the bestseller The Evolution of God, to discuss why Wright thinks that a concept of God is imperative to a moral society and that whether God truly exists may not be as important as how the idea of God has changed over time. Moyers also speaks with Mary Sweeters, of Greenpeace USA, and Erich Pica, of Friends of the Earth, about why they believe President Obama is not doing enough to save the environment and what they think needs to be included in climate change legislation. An essay on insurers' efforts to steer healthcare reform legislation with big money--to the detriment of patients and medical practitioners-- concludes the program."--Container
Buying in or selling out? the commercialization of the American research university ( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation Universities were once ivory towers where scholarship and teaching reigned supreme, or so we tell ourselves. Whether they were ever as pure as we think, it is certainly the case that they are pure no longer. Administrators look to patents as they seek money by commercializing faculty discoveries; they pour money into sports with the expectation that these spectacles will somehow bring in revenue; they sign contracts with soda and fast-food companies, legitimizing the dominance of a single brand on campus; and they charge for distance learning courses that they market widely. In this volume, edited by Donald G. Stein, university presidents and others in higher education leadership positions comment on the many connections between business and scholarship when intellectual property is treated as a marketable commodity. Some contributors write about the benefits of these connections in providing much needed resources. Others emphasize that the thirst for profits may bias the type of research that iscarried out and the quality of that research. They fear for the future of basic research if faculty are in search of immediate payoffs. The majority of the contributors acknowledge that commercialization is the current reality and has progressed too far to return to the "good old days." They propose guidelines for students and professors to govern commercial activities. Such guidelines can increase the likelihood that quality, openness, and collegiality will remain core academic values

Three farewells medicine & the end of life ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This program looks at the difficult choices a loving family makes as they confront the end of life. When a perfect pregnancy ends in unforeseen complications, and the newborn suffers very severe brain injury, how should the parents decide what is best for their baby? When, a few years later, the baby's grandmother descends into dementia from Alzheimer's, should her earlier wish to forego all medical treatment be honored, even though she may no longer understand--or agree--with the statements she made when she was competent? Still later, another family member receives a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. If she is terminally ill, should she be able to avail herself of medications to aid her in dying?"--Annenberg website
