This article reviews, first, the rationale for price regulation of on-patent pharmaceuticals and then models of optimal regulatory structure. It then describes the main regulatory prototypes for on-patent drugs and the empirical evidence on their effects. This is followed by a review of regulatory and reimbursement regimes for generics and evidence of their effects. Finally, international regulation of promotion is addressed. The concluding section reviews major unanswered research questions.
