In the coming years Amsterdam University Medical Center will be preparing more generic versions of rare and expensive medicines in their own pharmacy, with the goal of making these medicines more readily available and cheaper than the medicines offered by pharmaceutical companies. This was made possible by a 5 million euros donation from the VriendenLoterij, the Amsterdam hospital said in a press release.
The Dutch National Charity Lotteries issued an apology because a data leak resulted in details of 450 thousand players being accessible to hackers. About 900 players' bank account numbers were also visible. This involves participants of the Nationale Postcode Loterij, VriendenLoterij and the Bank Giro Loterij, NU.nl reports.
