FT - Professor turns to internet to distribute polypill. By Andrew Jack

A medical professor frustrated by regulatory barriers has turned to the internet to distribute a combination of existing medicines for preventing heart attacks in healthy people.
Professor Sir Nicholas Wald from the Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine, part of Queen Mary University of London, has backed a UK website that from Monday will sell the polypill, a single tablet combining authorised drugs to lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
