English term or phrase:name brand drugs
You can save 13% or more off the average wholesale price of name brand drugs.
The drug brand name is the name under which a new innovator drug is
developed and marketed. When a pharmaceutical company develops a
new drug, they obtain patent for it. Brand-name drugs are usually given
patent protection for more than 20 years. The patent protects the
company investments (including research, development, marketing etc.).
When the patent of a brand-name drug expires, other companies can
introduce its generic version. About 50% of the drugs on the market are
now available in generic form.
