PHARMACEUTICAL REGISTRATIONS ON THE UPTICK: Pharmaceutical lobbying registrations are on the upswing. This week, PI counts almost a dozen pharmaceutical-related registrations — as well as numerous other health care ones. Rock & Associates inked five new clients, according to lobbying registrations today: Braidwood Management , Diamondback Drugs , Veterinary Pharmacies of America , Wedgewood Village Pharmacy and Women's International Pharmacy . Those registrations were prompted by possible state and federal action on compound pharmacies — or the practice of designing customer pharmaceutical products. Other pharma-related registrations this week: The Delahunt Group this week inked Healiance Pharmaceuticals ; BioMarin Pharmaceutical registered an in-house lobbyist; and Alston & Bird inked three clients on pharmaceutical packaging-related issues.
