When it comes to patents, the argument for pharmaceutical patents is a lot more compelling than for many other areas. However, as you start to dig into the details, the argument for pharma patents becomes a lot more troublesome in that it creates incentives that have little to do with improving healthcare, and quite a lot to do with what can be patented. The monopoly power granted by patents pushes all research money into only things that can be patented, ignoring other possible cures, even if they can be both profitable and quite helpful. A recent GAO study found this to be a worrisome trend , noting that fewer new ...
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 ...

Patent medicine
The phrase "patent medicine" comes from the late 17th century marketing of medical elixirs, when those who found favour with royalty were issued letters patent authorising the use of the royal endorsement in advertising. The name stuck well after the American Revolution made these endorsements by the crowned heads of Europe obsolete. Few if any of the nostrums were actually patented; chemical patents did not come into use in the United States until 1925. In any case, attempting to monopolize a drug, medical device or medical procedure was considered unethical by standards upheld even during the era of patent medicine. ... market research, surveys and trends

7 (Supposedly) Impossible Scientific Achievements
A human being stepped foot on another heavenly body and, at the touch of a button, virtually any piece of information is available. The following seven scientific achievements, previously thought impossible, have transformed our lives. There is the old myth about the turn-of-the-century patent official: "I am retiring," the unnamed official is claimed to have said, "because there is nothing left to invent." It is easy to sympathize with this legendary clerk, for who in 1900 could have imagined the kinds of advances that would occur over the next hundred years? Here we present seven scientific achievements ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

How Chemists Pushed for Consumer Protection - The Food and Drugs ...
The Food and Drugs Act of 1906 brought about a radical shift in the way Americans regarded some of the most fundamental commodities of life itself, like the foods we eat and the drugs we take to restore our health. Today we take the quality and veracity of these products for granted and justifiably complain if they have been compromised. Our expectations have been elevated over the past century by revisions in law and regulation; by shifts—sometimes of a tectonic nature—in the science and technology that apply to our food, drugs, and other consumer products; and by the individuals, organizations, commercial institutions, and ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

"Ten," he says. "When I graduated medical school, there were 10 drugs recognized by physicians as useful and potent." It was 1923 when Kampmeier earned his M.D. from the University of Iowa, a time when, he remembers, "There were very few effective medications and people would make their own diagnosis and take their own medicines." Their own medicines--patent medicines--medically ineffective, sometimes dangerous--are the subject of a current display at the Vanderbilt Medical Center Library. The display features bottles and tins of the medicines, along with some of the advertising materials used to ...

I've been before (years ago) and saw all the "must see" sights, so looking for something out of the ordinary. I teach US history, so historically noteworthy sights are a plus. If it helps, my last trip I thought the postal museum was bad ass. I will not have a car while I am there. Seconding the National Building Museum. I've always liked Decatur House and the Old Stone House . Have you gone to the Iwo Jima Memorial (easily accessible from the Rosslyn Metro), or the Korean Veteran's Memorial ( particularly haunting when there is snow ). If you are in town from April to October you might go on a gargoyle tour at the
