Abstract

Il presente lavoro analizza i principali fatti caratterizzanti i comparti dei farmaci generici puri e dei branded off-patent in Italia, attraverso i dati relativi alle compravendite del 2002 (tramite il SSN e per via privata) di tutti i farmaci a base delle 10 molecole a brevetto scaduto che maggiormente concorrono alla spesa a carico del Servizio Sanitario Nazionale. Il comparto dei branded off-patent comprende, ai fini della presente analisi, sia i branded ex titolari di brevetto (gli originator) che i generici-branded, cioè le loro copie di marca diffuse sul mercato dopo la scadenza del brevetto.
