Attorney General Cuccinelli Announces Settlement with Healthpoint, Ltd. and DFB Pharmaceuticals, Inc. for Illegal Marketing of Xenaderm

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli announced that it has reached a settlement Healthpoint, Ltd. and its general partner, DFB Pharmaceuticals, for the illegal marketing of Xenaderm, a topical treatment for skin ulcers. The attorney general said that the agreement will resolve allegations that Healthpoint submitted false claims to Virginia's Medicaid program for the unapproved drug. The settlement resolves federal and state False Claims Act cases brought against Healthpoint in the U.S. Federal District Court in Massachusetts. The cases were brought by the U.S. Department of Justice and fifteen plaintiff states. As part of a $48 million settlement announced by the Department of Justice on December 6, 2012, Healthpoint and DFB will pay approximately $33 million total to settle Medicaid-based claims nationally. The settlement will return $223,283.17 to the commonwealth's Medicaid program. The federal and state complaints alleged Healthpoint marketed Xenaderm without FDA approval by modeling it on a pre-1962 drug that the FDA had never reviewed. Additionally, Healthpoint marketed the drug in spite of the FDA's determination in the 1970s that Xenaderm's principal ingredient was less-than-effective for its intended use.
