The missing nine pages – GlaxoSmithKline misses Sentator Grassley’s deadline and continues to hide evidence

Just how long does it take to write an email with a PDF attachment of nine missing pages?

Half an hour?

15 minutes?

No time at all if you have nothing to hide and want to be open and honest… shame that this obviously doesn’t apply to GlaxoSmithKline.

This from Charles Grassley’s letter to Glaxo on February 6 this year:

It is my understanding that 9 pages of Dr. Glenmullen’s report are not available
publicly. Accordingly, please respond to the following questions and request for
information. Please repeat each enumerated question and follow it with your response.

1. When did GSK first learn that Paxil was associated with an increased suicide
risk?

2. When did GSK first report to FDA that Paxil was associated with an increased
suicide risk?

3. When did GSK first notify patients and doctors that Paxil was associated with
an increased suicide risk? Please provide all pertinent documents and
communications.

4. Please provide the Committee with the complete, unredacted version of Dr.
Glenmullen’s report. Along with that report, please provide the appendix and
all documents that are referred to in the report, in the order that they are
referenced.

5. Please provide the Committee with the accompanying children and
adolescents report. Along with this report, please provide the appendix and all
documents that are noted in the report, in the order that they are referenced.

Thank you again for your continued assistance in this matter.

Because I understand that these documents are already available in electronic format, I would
appreciate receiving the documents and information requested by no later than February
14, 2008.

The deadline’s come and gone – what are you hiding from us Glaxo?

    Maybe the question should be, how long does it take them to “shred” 9 pages?…
