Rumors in the corridor were enough for the president FnomCeo Amedeo Bianco to take pen and paper and write to the Dg Aifa. And, for information, to the Minister of Welfare and his three undersecretaries. In a letter to Guido Rasi Bianco clarifies the position of the doctors against the hypothesis that in the next medical-scientific meeting the Agency discusses the possibility of establishing the obligation for white coats to prescribe medicines through the exclusive indication of the active principle. However, the doctors claim prescriptive autonomy and clarify that "from a technical point of view it is well known that the bioequivalence of the active ingredient may not correspond to that of the drug as a whole".
