 What are we doing here? [Off Topic]

...read this morning in a discharge report from hospital, below the Section "Medication":

" Selbstverständlich können auch Präparate gleicher Bioäquivalenz und Bioverfügbarkeit verwendet werden."

((emphasis on the "und" ("and"), please note!!1elf!!1!))

Is BE/BA really only relevant/understood in regulatory/scientific discussion? Is there anybody out there?

January blues here, going back to my work now...

Kindest regards, nobody

Isn't this ok?
I mean, yes the terminology may be a little off, but the doctor seems to be acknowledging that generic drugs may be equally safe and efficaceous.
The doctor you are quoting is light years ahead of the average doctor here in Denm....uhm...sorry I mean Belgium.

Le tits now.

Ahoy my capt’n!

Quoting Charlie DiLiberti (2nd GBHI, Rockville 2016):

Ask ten physicians what bioequivalence is,
and eleven of them get it wrong.

Hi Dan-gium!

» » " Selbstverständlich können auch Präparate gleicher Bioäquivalenz und Bioverfügbarkeit verwendet werden."

"gleicher Bioäquivalenz" - identical bioequivalence? REALLY?

It's just "cover-my-axx" for the primary doc to prescribe the cheapest/the generic the health care provider of the specific patient has a manufacturer contract for all its patients with. The wording is more than "a little offffff"... :-(

If you have a FENCE at the southern border, it's definitely Denmark. Otherwise it might be somethink else... :-D
