LONDON — The American people, it turns out, have no idea what exactly is going on in the global pharmaceutical industry.
A survey released this month by Medscape, one of the world’s leading health-care-consulting firms, found that only a quarter of U.S. adults, and a fifth of Europeans, had heard of Merck’s blockbuster blockbuster drug, Zaltrap, for the treatment of anorexia nervosa.
The drug, which works by boosting your own energy levels, has been a huge commercial success for the European Medicines Agency, which promotes drugs approved in its member countries, especially the United States.
The agency helped Merck achieve record revenues in 2011, with the company selling 15 million pills for the drug. It won approval for Zaltrap from an EU panel, which must review each new drug through rigorous tests.
It was supposed to be a simple answer to the rising problem of anorexia: Take the most expensive drug on the market and give people the chance of an energy boost. But more people are now struggling with anorexia.
The drug — developed by Merck in England but initially developed in Germany — was approved in the United States because it helps patients without anorexia, which is marked by difficulty in maintaining a healthy weight. Merck has since withdrawn Zaltrap in the United States after reports that it was causing rare childhood cancers to grow and spread. (In some cases, that may be because of the drug’s effect on people with genes that are associated with tumors.)

The report, “Cleaning Up USDA’s Farm Animal Emissions Program,” said that the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has not addressed four dozen complaints of animal mistreatment in the past five years. The USDA has also failed to implement standards developed over the last decade to limit the amount of manure that animals are
