Senate Group Examines Drug Industry
WASHINGTON () - Merck &
Co. Inc., one of the nation's big-
gest drug houses, charges $170 for
the same quantity of an anti-
arthritic remedy sold by a Mexi-
can firm for $13.61, a Senate in-

Blair was one of the first wit-
nesses Monday when the subcom-
mittee opened its investigation to
determine whether drug makers
are charging too much for their
preparations at the wholesale level.
Blair said Merck charged drug-
gists $170 for this quantity of
prednisone and that the rate to
patients was $283.33.
Connor attacked the validity of

testimony that Schering applied
markups up to 7,079 per cent on
some of its drugs, including reme-

conclusions "severely damaging
