Seroxat comics… back by popular demand – but what’s happened to Pharma Giles?

So farewell then Pharma Giles… does anone know what has happened to the excellent (and oh so funny) Pharma Giles blog?

Was Giles paid off?  Was he threatened?  Why no explanation?

Maybe the answer lies over at Pharma Gossip?

Anyway, as it seems that Big Pharma doesn’t like being made fun of, here are the Seroxat comics once again!

Although the wonderous ego that is JP Garnier has left Glaxo now, I for one will never forget the caring, sensitive man who watched as Glaxo’s share fell by 40% during his leadership. And what about the MHRA investigation that this year found Glaxo had withheld evidence that the controversial drug, Seroxat, increased the likelihood of suicide among teenagers?

Way to go, JP…

I’m not sure which one I like best – it’s maybe a bit unfair to pick on poor Alastair Benbow quite so much because Breckenridge of the MHRA was just as useless when he was interviewed on Panorama.

OK – I’m sorry, I’ve had a chance to reconsider that last remark – I take it back. Pick on Benbow as much as you like, he deserves it!

You’ll remember that Benbow is the man, who, when asked on television by pharmacology expert Dr Andrew Herxheimer about why GSK had given no warning about the severe reactions from Seroxat despite knowing about it for 5 years… simply replied “Seroxat has provided countless benefits to many people and enabled them to do more, live longer and feel better… and I think that speaks for itself…”

That reply certainly does speak for itself – Glaxo’s corporate mission statement is “… enabling people to do more, feel better and live longer.” In fact, you can download GSK’s corporate brochure here – it’s entitled “Do more, feel better, live longer”.

Good to know we can rely on Dr Alastair Benbow to seriously address patient concerns about one of Glaxo’s drugs without even bothering to consider the direct question that had been asked.

Watch Benbow in action here and marvel at the way he continually avoids questions.

Please remember Alastair – it’s just a little bit of fun!

Latest on the MHRA’s four year ‘criminal’ investigation into GlaxoSmithKline

It has been so long now (four years) that most of us have forgotten how the MHRA’s investigation started.

Perhaps it went something like this:

Seroxat Comics – reprise

When I was young a big part of my summer holiday were the comics I bought. So in the spirit of times past, here are the Seroxat comics yet again:

Seroxat Comics – all 3 together

I thought it might be an idea to put all three Seroxat comics together on one post for you all to download:

Seroxat comic – 3

Well now, will you look at what just turned up – a new Seroxat comic called “Buying Our Silence”.

Quite apt really, given what’s going on in the High Court in London… I wonder what the media would make of this case if it ever did come to court. Just imagine all the damaging detail that would come out – I doubt Glaxo would ever sell another drug again. Panorama is one thing, the High Court is quite another

The two links here will take to the first Seroxat comic and the second one

…and this link will take you to a previous post Buying Our Silence, which I might humbly suggest was part of the inspiration for this latest Seroxat comic?

Click on the pages to see a full size image and then download and distribute as you like – but remember, I’m sure it’s all meant as just a little bit of fun…?

Seroxat comic – 2 (repost)

A quick repost, as I see from my Blog stats (yes Big Brother is watching you!) that the first Seroxat Comic is getting a lot of hits the last few days…

Here is a link to the second Seroxat Comic for those of who might have missed it first time round.

Did I hear someone ask about number three….?

Who knows – just stay tuned!

Seroxat comic – 2

I hoped there might be more Seroxat comics – this one tells the story of a tricky situation resolved to Glaxo’s satisfaction… just click on each thumbnail to load a full size page.

Enjoy – and remember – it’s only a little bit of fun… ?

Seroxat comic

Well I suppose it had to happen – if a picture is worth a thousand words then how powerful is a simple 4 page comic?

This has just been sent to me and I hope all the links work – regular readers will know I’m not one for using images on Seroxat Secrets… one thing that struck me was how much JP Garnier looks like Monty Burns on page 4!

Click on the pages and enjoy – and remember, it’s just a little bit of fun…
