In a new book, Dr. Jeremy Greene has traced how generics came to be, how they are regulated, what the issues are and new issues cropping up with high-tech drugs. He's called the book, "Generic: The Unbranding of Modern Medicine." Dr. Greene is an associate professor of medicine and holds a chair in the History of Medicine at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He joins Sheilah in the studio. Dr. Greene will be speaking about the book at the Ivy Bookshop Stage of the Baltimore Book Festival on Saturday at 1 p.m.; more details here.
