McKesson accused of mishandling cancer drugOmni Healthcare is suing wholesale drug distributor McKesson Corp. on behalf of the federal government and 30 states for allegedly repackaging cancer drugs from single-use vials at the expense of the government and patients.

McKesson is one of the largest pharmaceutical distributors in the country and is accused of violating the False Claims Act. The lawsuit, filed late Tuesday afternoon in New York federal court, alleges McKesson repackaged the "overfill" from vials of Aloxi, Procrit and other oncology drugs into non-sterile syringes and sold them to cancer centers, medical practices and physicians. The providers would then bill the government for the drugs.

Omni alleged that over a 10-year span McKesson intentionally put cancer patients at serious risk for infection while defrauding federal, state and local governments out of hundreds of millions of dollars.
