Read the full article:  SAP blockchain service helps fight counterfeit drugs - TechTarget

"SAP is working to combat counterfeit drugs. The company has released a blockchain offering that is aimed at authenticating drugs in the supply chain. 
The SAP blockchain application for the pharmaceutical industry is designed to ensure that any drugs returned to a wholesaler from hospitals and pharmacies are validated before they are resold, according to SAP. The blockchain was developed in the SAP Information Collaboration Hub for Life Sciences, a public cloud network involving several large pharmaceutical wholesalers and manufacturers, which SAP launched in November 2017."
