Small Drug Maker
Says' Big Boys'
By FRED S. HOFFMAN
WASHINGTON, W) A small
drug maker said today the big
pharmaceutical houses are goug
ing the American people by at
least 750 million dollars a year.
Seymour N. Blackman pictured
the' prescription user as the cap
tive of a big company monopoly
the victim of overpricing with
no freedom of choice in selecting
the brand of medication he needs.
Blackman, 39-year-old. , execu
tive of two 'New,, Jersey firms,
made this attack on his big com
petitors in testimony before the
Senate antitrust ''subcommittee.
The Senate group is trying to de
termine whether drug prices are
too high at tbe ' wholesale level,
and if Congress should do some
thing about it.
"I personally feel that the
American public is overpaying
at least three-quarters of a
billion dollars, annually for the
medication which they purchase
on prescription," Blackman said.
"The consumer buying drugs on
prescription . , . has no choice. He
must buy the medication and he
has no choice as to the brand . . ."
Blackman executive secre
tary of Premo Laboratories Inc. of
South Hackensack and president
of Omega Precision Medical In
struments Inc. of Passaic charg
ed the big drug firms have won
control of medicine pricing by
controling patents on new wonder
remedies and other compounds.
Among other things, Blackman
contended advertising costs have
become so huge "that small com
panies cannot afford to make their
way In the market place.".
Ha said part of the reason
for "ridiculously high" pre
scription prices lay in what he
said were big outlays by major
drug houses to propagandize
"They (the physicians) are al
most brainwashed by the prepon
derance of advertising that is
thrust upon them," Blackman told
the investigators. He said the drug
makers "didn't sell the people,
they sold the physician."
Previous witnesses, speaking
for some of the major pharma
ceutical houses, have denied any
monopoly or overpricing. And
they have defended their pro

Blackman Was critical of some
doctors who he said seem inclined
to accept claims made for higher
priced products of big drug firms.
He said these doctors lean toward
such products rather than pre
scribing lower cost remedies made
by smaller houses.
Even if his company should
develop an arthritis remedy twice
as good as any now being market
ed, Blackman testified, "The only
way we could make money with

holders of medicine patents to
license all qualified firms seek

Blackman also proposed that
Congress look into the possibility
of limiting advertising expenses
and profits of drug companies.

on the gang. He was told Smith
was not there.
