Pfizer spokesman Andrew Topen said that the company is investigating who is behind the fake website. Ownership details for the site are hidden in publicly available databases.
Pfizer released a statement Thursday afternoon: “A false press release related to drug pricing and linking to a fake web site was anonymously issued earlier today. It was erroneously attributed to Pfizer and should be disregarded. Pfizer is investigating this matter and evaluating its legal options against the parties responsible. Pfizer is committed to engaging in an honest discussion and real dialogue about the issues that matter to patients.”
