New York accuses Insys of deceptively marketing opioid

Feb 1 (Reuters) - New York's attorney general on Thursday filed a lawsuit against Insys Therapeutics Inc seeking $75 million from the pharmaceutical company, which he said deceptively promoted a powerful fentanyl-based cancer pain medicine for unsafe uses.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman alleged that the Chandler, Arizona-based drugmaker recklessly marketed its product Subsys for wider uses than the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved and bribed doctors to prescribe it.
