Τα φάρμακα και τα ψέματα

Μέρος 5ο - Το παράπλευρο σκάνδαλο και οι αυθαίρετες τιμολογήσεις

Το μεγαλύτερο έμμεσο σκάνδαλο και η αποτυχία των μέτρων των μνημονίων είναι ότι δεν μειώθηκε η κατανάλωση σε κουτιά φαρμάκων πρωτότυπων έναντι των γενόσημων.

Η δημόσια φαρμακευτική δαπάνη είναι κουτιά επί μέση τιμή. Και πως να μειωθεί όταν δεν υπάρχει πλαίσιο ελέγχου της συνταγογράφησης. Οταν δεν θωρακίζεται το σύστημα με θεραπευτικά πρωτόκολλα, που διαχρονικά διαφήμιζαν οι προηγούμενες κυβερνήσεις αλλά ποτέ όμως δεν ενσωμάτωσαν στην ηλεκτρονική συνταγογράφηση. Σήμερα το υπουργείο Υγείας έχει κλειδώσει 15 θεραπευτικά πρωτόκολλα από τα συνολικά 25 που έχουν ενσωματωθεί και ετοιμάζονται άλλα 20, όπως δήλωσε πρόσφατα ο υπουργός Υγείας Ανδρέας Ξανθός.

Η έλλειψη ελέγχου σε συνδυασμό με τις αυθαίρετες τιμολογήσεις των πολυεθνικών του φαρμάκου και μη έχοντας διαπραγματευτική ικανότητα είναι ένα μείγμα εκρηκτικό.

Η δημιουργία Επιτροπής των χωρών του Ευρωπαϊκού Νότου για τη διαπραγμάτευση των τιμών των καινοτόμων φαρμάκων και η δημιουργία Επιτροπής Αξιολόγησης και Τεχνολογίας (ΗTA) του Ανδρέα Ξανθού είναι θεσμικές παρεμβάσεις προς την κατεύθυνση της οχύρωσης του συστήματος σε επίπεδο τιμολόγησης και διαπραγμάτευσης τιμών.

Ενδεικτικά αναφέρουμε το παράδειγμα του Sintrom και του Xarelto που αδειοδοτήθηκε επί εποχής Αδωνη.

Η αντιπηκτική θεραπεία χρόνια ολόκληρα σε όλο τον κόσμο ήταν το Sintrom, το οποίο κοστίζει δύο ευρώ, της Ciba-Geigy, της μητέρας εταιρείας, μαζί με τη Sandoz, της Novartis.

To 2013 αδειοδοτείται το Xarelto της Bayer και παίρνει τιμή 68 ευρώ στη χώρα μας. Το Sintrom, «αρχαίο» θαυματουργό φάρμακο, είναι αντιθρομβωτικό. Το Xarelto βγήκε με ένδειξη την αποφυγή θρομβώσεων μετά από χειρουργεία στα οστά. Το ότι είναι για χειρουργεία στα οστά δεν λέει τίποτα. Το προώθησε η φαρμακευτική εταιρεία, το πήραν οι γιατροί και τον επόμενο χρόνο βγήκε πρώτο φάρμακο σε δαπάνες στην Ελλάδα. Το κόστος του, 30 φορές πάνω από την παλιά κλασική συνταγή.

Πρόκειται για τη μεγαλύτερη επιτυχία της Bayer, για την οποία ακόμα χτυπάει το κεφάλι της η Novartis γιατί το ινστιτούτο που το έβγαλε απευθύνθηκε πρώτα σε εκείνη. Με το Xarelto η Bayer έκανε παγκόσμια επιτυχία, με πρωταθλήτρια τη χώρα μας.

  1. Mueller's indictments are not "Russia-Gate". This is Russia-Gate; Murder-Gate:
    John Brennan is Murdering, Torturous Thief (amongst this entire “intelligence” community).
    Russia-Gate; Murder-Gate
    These people have tried to kill me multiple times.
    I continue to be tortured and abused.
    They have tried to Frame me as “Crazy” — I am the furthest thing from it and this is the unequivocal truth!
    There are countless murders.
    Children have been exploited; Families have been destroyed.
    Public Funds were stolen.
    They have lined their pockets with my intellectual property and with agendas of murder (including mine).
    These people have and continue to steal my intellectual property worth Trillions and obscure my discoveries.
    The people implicated in this are the purported leaders of our Nation.
    This is the truth and the starting point beginning/source of “Russia-Gate”.
    This includes the former director of the CIA et al.
    This entire US Government has been engaged and I have all the substantiating evidence to prove it (see below).
    As I have stated numerous times: I am begging for my life.
    Further your families, their lives, their freedom, and our United States of America depends on Public exposure and your representation.
    I need YOUR LEGAL HELP and/or Representation NOW!!!
    This is life and death and the outcome of our United States and our Earth “The Free World” depends on this.
    Share everywhere, help me expose these murdering, torturous thieves.
    When I have Justice, I will have the platform to ensure the Legislation is passed and enforced.
    I own a 3.6 Trillion Dollar Quantum Technological Revolution that I will not commence (establish my business) until I have achieved Justice, and my fellow Americans and Citizens of this Earth are free people (again). Democracy restored.
    Why would any of these people care? This apparatus of Evil has fleeced our U.S. Government (20 Trillion+ in debt), and I possess the intellectual property (Quantum Technological Revolution) to ensure the sustainment of our United States (tax dollars alone, not including the economics that go along with it).
    Further, when Justice has been achieved and all this has been exposed – trials complete – my business (BASRC) is an equal opportunity employer and I will ENFORCE Gender Equality. At no point in time will my Corporation have more than +/- 55% Men or Women within it. There will be ZERO Discrimination of any type.
    This is the truth; this is “Russia-Gate”.
    I need your help if for any other reason because you care about your children, grandchildren, Democracy, our United States of America, our Earth, and Humanity.
    I need your help now!!!

How CIA altered the ending of Orwell's 'Animal Farm' to project Communism as the sole tyrannic system

globinfo freexchange

This interesting short documentary by AJ+, explores the cultural war between the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War. In an effort to project Communism as the evil against capitalist West and the "free world", CIA had to covertly interfere through various ways in art, music, literature, philosophy.

In one of these cases, the documentary reveals how CIA altered the ending of Orwell's 'Animal Farm' to project Communism as the sole tyrannic system. It is also interesting the fact that the case involved an animated film, indicating that CIA's cultural propaganda was targeting minor Americans in order to "train" them ideologically.

According to the story, George Orwell, who wrote such middle-school classics as 1984 and Animal Farm, described himself as a Democratic Socialist. And he was actually pretty anti-Stalinist and anti-Soviet-style socialism, something which was unusual among Leftist circles at the time.

We already live in a permanent recession in which the Wall Street mafia secretly and continuously is being bailed out with billions by the Fed!

globinfo freexchange
Jimmy Dore and Dylan Ratigan explain in this video the secret mechanism through which the Fed is permanently bailing out the Wall Street mafia with billions. 
Dore refers to a September article by CNN Business with information that, under normal circumstances, should have made big headlines, generating massive anger.
We were trained not to be surprised by the liquidity injections that the central banks like the Fed and ECB provide to the biggest financial institutions. When at the same time, the real economy, and especially the small-medium business sector is literally struggling to survive in the capitalist West.
Yet, in this case, some additional information reveals something impressive. As Dore highlights from the article: 
                  Until this week, the Fed hadn't launched an operation like this since 2008. [...] Still, the fact the Fed needed to pump $128 billion into the system on successive days shows that a crack has emerged in a seldom-discusse…

It's now or never: the first step for a Sanders/Corbyn synchronization in power must be done on 12 December in UK

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the global working class
by system failure
Two years ago, we wondered whether a US government under Bernie Sanders, together with a UK government under Jeremy Corbyn, could mark a decisive victory against neoliberalism. Whether it could mark the beginning of the end of the Reagan/Thatcher awful legacy.

It seems that the time has come for the first step towards this prospect.

The oncoming UK general election on Thursday 12 December 2019, will be the most critical for decades, especially for the global working class. The outcome will determine to a significant degree, whether the capitalist West will change course away from the destructive neoliberalism, towards a form of Democratic Socialism. A new model that will resurrect the social state, while at the same time, will seriously deal with the great environmental challenges, defying big interests and rejecting the for-profit-wars model.

The global youth radicalization and the fight for Socialism

by Eric London
Across the world, in countries as culturally distinct as Ecuador, Lebanon, France, Germany, the US, Iraq, Chile and Haiti, a new generation of working class youth is making its powerful entrance onto the battlefield of the global class struggle.

Citing the international scope of recent mass demonstrations, the Guardian's Simon Tisdall recently wrote: “Each country’s protests differ in detail, but recent upheavals do appear to share one key factor: youth ... This global phenomenon of unfulfilled youthful aspirations is producing political time bombs. Each month in India, one million people turn 18 and can register to vote. In the Middle East and North Africa, an estimated 27 million youngsters will enter the workforce in the next five years.

The political awakening of the most educated, urbanized and technologically interconnected generation in history is of critical strategic significance for the entire working class. 
Born beginning in the 1990s, today's youth…

Το Μητσοτακικό καθεστώς βάζει σε εφαρμογή το σχέδιο για τη δημιουργία κράτους σκληρής καταστολής

globinfo freexchange

Μετά το πρώτο βήμα που έκανε το Μητσοτακικό καθεστώς για τη δημιουργία Ειδικών Οικονομικών Ζωνών εντός της Ελληνικής επικράτειας, δηλαδή για τα φέουδα του 21ου αιώνα, όπως είχαμε προβλέψει, φαίνεται ότι, δυστυχώς, αρχίζει να επαληθεύεται και το σχέδιο για την ανασύσταση του δεξιού παρακράτους.  
Ήδη από το Μάιο του 18, είχαμε επισημάνει ότι σε ομιλία του στη βουλή, ο Μητσοτάκης ξεκίνησε το παραλήρημα του περί βίας αναφερόμενος συγκεκριμένα στα 'Εξάρχεια', τους 'Ρουβίκωνες' και τους 'αγανακτισμένους'. Και στο σημείο αυτό, πάλι κάτι ξέχασε: τους φασίστες.
Έτσι, έστειλε σήμα στους μηχανισμούς του αστικού καθεστώτος ότι θα συνεχίζει να το προστατεύει εγκαθιστώντας ένα κράτος σκληρής καταστολής, χωρίς να πειράξει το ακροδεξιό βαθύ κράτος που επιστρατεύει η εγχώρια ολιγαρχία όταν αισθάνεται κίνδυνο. Ένας κίνδυνος που μπορεί να έρθει σε περίπτωση νέων αναταραχών από τις βάναυσες πολιτικές λιτότητας που ο Μητσοτάκης θα συνεχίσει να εφαρμόζει π…

Trump threatens to transfer the endo-capitalist war into a civil war level

globinfo freexchange
Donald Trump finally counter-attacked against corporate Democrats and their persistent desire to impeach him, through the ultimate threat: a civil war. In a recent tweet he wrote:
"... If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.
....If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.” Pastor Robert Jeffress, @FoxNews — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
Speaking to the Real News Network, Jeet Heer of The Nation pointed out:
The civil-war tweet is almost like a threat. It’s like, 'Well, this is a nice little Republic you got here, and it’d be a shame if anything happened to it.' But the thing is that this civil-war talk did not originate from T…

Under digital surveillance: how American schools spy on millions of kids

Fueled by fears of school shootings, the market has grown rapidly for technologies that monitor students through official school emails and chats
by Lois Beckett

Part 5 - Shifts in culture

School officials say that their primary motivation for using surveillance technology is the chance to save a student’s life. But schools are monitoring students’ digital documents in real time for a wide range of content they see as problematic, from swear words to nude images and pornography to cyberbullying to evidence of drug and alcohol use.

In Weld county, Colorado, a student emailed a teacher that she heard two boys were going to smoke weed in a bathroom, Hernandez, the student services and safety director, said. Gaggle immediately alerted school officials: “Within four minutes of her sending this email, the troops had deployed,” she said.
Gaggle also automatically sends students a scolding email any time they use a profanity.

A few school districts have chosen not to send students Gaggle’s war…

Julian Assange's extradition process is 'a charade'

The Real News Network
Filmmaker John Pilger attended Julian Assange's last court hearing and observed not only that Assange is visibly suffering from prison mistreatment, but his defense is not being given a fair chance to make its case against his extradition to the US.


Bernie and AOC demonstrate how Baby Boomers could help Millennials escape the neoliberal Matrix

globinfo freexchange
In a recent ad, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez explains why she endorsed Bernie Sanders for President. Yet, it would be interesting to examine a specific point she makes at the beginning of this short video. AOC says:
                    The first time I ever heard about Bernie Sanders was when I was a waitress in a greasy spoon diner type of restaurant in downtown Manhattan. And I had been working 12 hour days. I didn't have health insurance. I was being paid less than a living wage. And I didn't think that I deserved any of those things, I thought that that's just how life was.

Her last (highlighted) phrase tells you a lot of how deeply the neoliberal perception has penetrated inside societies and especially inside the minds of new generations. Entire generationshave been trained to believe that that's how things are, in order to accept the neoliberal order and retire from any attempt to overthrow it.
As we wrote in a previous article, during the last f…
