Patent medicine promoters pioneered many advertising and sales techniques. Patent medicine advertising often touted exotic ingredients, even if their actual effects came from more practical elements.

Within the English-speaking world, patent medicines are as old as journalism. The marketing of patent medicine formulas fueled the circulation of early newspapers. Newspaper and magazine advertising helped spread the word of these nostrums to the country's most remote corners. By the 19th ...
of questionable effectiveness sold under a variety of names and labels. The term "patent medicine" is somewhat of a misnomer because, in most cases, although many of the products were trademarked , they were never patented (most avoided the patent process so as not to reveal products' often hazardous and questionable ingredients). Perhaps the only "patent medicine" ever to be patented was Castoria . In ancient times, such medicine was called nostrum remedium ("our remedy" in Latin ). The name patent medicine has become particularly associated with the sale of drug compounds in the nineteenth ...

Comment on Out of Context Ad Challenge: the Solution by Jan
A widely advertised iron tonic is Crude’s Pepto-Mangan. This preparation was exposed in 1905 and again in 1917 by the American Medical Association as a concoction worthless in the treatment of anemia. Its advertising was found to be based on false claims and misrepresentations. After a period of quiescence there has been a renaissance in the exploitation and marketing of this product, and the old ballyhoo has been trotted out in modern dress. As in most tonics, a main ingredient of Pepto-Mangan is ethyl alcohol. In days of Prohibition, tonics used to be an excellent source for a drink of liquor—and they still are. In 1936 ... market research, surveys and trends
Patents and Ethics in the Pharmaceutical Industry | Investing blog ...
This paper is concerned with the impacts of strict patents in the pharmaceutical industry, focusing on the Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPs) Agreement. It discusses the historical and current policy context, to better understand how strict patents affect the availability of essential drugs in developing countries. The research shows that the pharmaceutical industry prioritises profit above health. Strict patents reduce the availability and affordability of new essential drugs in developing countries, and thereby have a negative impact on the health of the world’s poor.

Basic Juice - the wine blog for my generation: spirits
According to the Beeb, most folks can't tell what's in their vodka.  In a quasi-scientific study, the BBC discovered that only 3 in 20 sippers could correctly guess from what produce (rye, barley, wheat, something else) a vodka was made.  Read the BBC piece here . In one popular Russian novel, vodka is made from a wooden stool - which is not quite so fantastic as it seems, as the drink was once made commercially from the by-products of wood-pulp processing.

What new Alzheimer's research means for today's Baby Boomers
Radical new thinking in the field of Alzheimer's study holds out the hope that literally millions of Baby Boomers could be diagnosed and possibly treated before the disease's devastation takes effect. While this is good news for middle-aged Americans, it's even better news for certain medical-industry companies, which stand to reap significant profits. Unfortunately, though, the byzantine public-private system of health insurance in this country means that insurers aren't likely to spend a penny on these potentially lifesaving actions.

Question: For David Sarokin: Quack Remedies - UClue
Hi David Could you please write a few words on Quack Remedies and 'Munyon's Homoeopathic Medicines' in particular, including the origins of the Quacks in the US; their exposure and the eventual controls. You will recall that Dr Crippen worked for Munyon's for a period and I am interested in the pre-1910 period (Crippen's era) in particular. However, there is no need to focus on Crippen specifically unless you turn up a real Lulu. Reportedly, all Munyon's remedies that were sold in the UK were prepared and packed in the US.
