However, 60 percent of the companies throw the norms to the wind. The Pune-based ACE Remedies Private Limited is one such company run by Pawan Kumar Jagdishchand Goyal, who is the Managing Director of the firm. This company is alleged to have made changes in the basic ingredients used in the manufacture of the drugs. Due to this faulty practice, the medicines manufactured are proving harmful to the patients.
The patents obtained by submitting misleading clinical data can adversely affect the patient’s life. As such, all the patents obtained by Ace Remedies be canceled, and the company be made to conduct the clinical trials afresh under the guidance of the panel comprising reputed doctors, Datta Jadhav (name changed to protect identity) has demanded. Goyal could not be reached for his comments despite several attempts.
“ I have lodged several complaints with FDA about the company’s suspicious way of functioning. I demand that the FDA should take serious note of my complaints and take action under the provisions of the Indian Medicine Central Council Act 1970 against the company. Besides, a criminal complaint was filed against Goyal. However, no action has been taken as yet against Goyal due to “underhand dealings” between Goyal and FDA Commissioner”
