Earlier in February, the headlines read that United States medicine industry has been served with fake supplies of the Roche drug, which has been shipped in to the borders of United States from the Middle East through Europe.

The agencies are calculating similar pattern following this month’s fake medicine supply discovery, as they have revealed that the supply batch has been shipped in Turkey through Britain and the efforts behind the entire operation are of a UK-based middlemen, confirms officials in their statements of Wednesday.

This second discovery of the illegal trade is highlighting big dangers for global medicine supply chain. The worst affected group of this illegal trading business will be the patients, whose lives have been put on risk with these ineffective or contaminated products.

S. market.
