There are spurious versions of all types of medicines in the market: branded drugs, generic and over-the-counter drugs and even herbal medicines. A fake medicine may contain no active ingredient, harmful ingredients, wrong chemicals, wrong dose concentration and expired drugs.
Counterfeit medicines post a risk of treatment failure and to the safety of patients. These products can be found across the globe and they look identical to the authentic versions often making them difficult to detect.
There have been initiatives by health authorities and law agencies to prevent the distributions of counterfeits and larger organizations are attempting to bring about new technologies to authenticate their products. Majority of companies worldwide are following mandatory methods such as serialization involving the use of barcodes. These barcodes can be read by machines to provide information about each packet of medicine. However, these barcodes are highly susceptible to getting copied by simple machines like printers and smartphones and make their way into the actual supply chain.
