Pennsylvania-based medical device manufacturer Biocompatibles Inc., a subsidiary of British-based BTG plc, pleaded guilty and agreed to pay more than $36 million for violating the False Claims Act and Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act by misbranding its embolic device LC Bead, which is used to treat liver cancer, among other diseases, and by marketing and selling the product for uses not approved by the FDA.  The matter originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act by Ryan Bliss who oversaw Bicompatibles’ North American marketing.  He will receive a whistleblower award of approximately $5.1 million from the proceeds of the government’s False Claims Act recovery.  Whistleblower Insider
