E-DRUG: Branded generics and INNs
---------------------------------

Dear all

Generic products are often branded and sold under fancy names, so we¹d
better talk about International Nonproprietary Names (INNs).

There is campaign launched by Medicines in Europe Forum that promotes the
use of INNs by healthcare professionals and the public, with Information
material explaining the advantages of using INNs at

The ISDB Newsletter November 2006 is entirely dedicated to the INN issue.

or on WHO/INN program website at
