Podcast 22: Interview with Aaron Kesselheim about his meta-analysis of the efficacy of proprietary versus generic cardiovascular drugs.

This week, in addition to the usual news roundup, we talk with Dr. Aaron Kesselheim about his JAMA paper on the equivalence between proprietary and generic cardiovascular drugs. The data and the editorials are often at odds on this question.
