    Amazon’s Pharmacy Team Expands

    Amazon’s exploratory pharmacy business leadership team has expanded to between 30 and 40 people, according to a report from financial research firm Leerink.

    Amazon also held exploratory talks in November with generic drug manufacturers such as Sandoz and Mylan, leading analyst to speculate that Amazon will sell generic drugs.

    Leerink believes that Amazon’s entry into the pharmaceutical business is a matter of “when” not “if.” CNBC reported. "Amazon saw the inclusion of pharmaceutical drugs as a natural add-on to its existing product offerings,” Leerink’s report stated.

    Amazon’s latest high-profile health care hire is Martin Levine, a doctor who specializes in new models of patient care, CNBC said.
