Man Pleads Guilty to Selling Unapproved Cancer Drugs

A man has pleaded guilty to conspiring to import unapproved cancer drugs in the United States, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Office of Criminal Investigations announced last week.

Martin Paul Bean admitted that he operated a business from his house in Florida that sold millions of prescription oncology drugs to doctors through the United States. Bean would order the drugs from companies in Pakistan, India and Turkey and other various foreign sources.

As part of his guilty plea, Bean admitted that he would market the drugs online and through “blast faxes” sent to doctors’ offices, FDA OCI said. Bean’s business, GlobalRxStore, maintained a call center in Winnipeg, Canada, which accepted telephone, facsimile and electronic mail orders from doctors in the United States. Bean also admitted that the GlobalRxStore website falsely stated that it was lawful to import the drugs from abroad and sell them in the United States.

Bean is scheduled to be sentenced on May 6, 2013.
