US clinic claims CSL fixed prices of blood plasma

Posted on March 30th, 2010 by

America's Mayo Clinic claims to have lost millions of dollars at the hands of a damaging and illegal blood-plasma cartel run by Australia's biggest healthcare company, CSL, alleging in court documents that a conspiracy existed to drive down supply, inflate prices and snuff out competition.

 

Mayo Clinic claims CSL's US-based business CSL Behring, rival Baxter International and the industry's peak body, the Plasma Protein Therapeutics Association, used the pretext of avoiding supply shortages to justify meetings where information was exchanged and a cartel was formed.
