Seroxat and Panorama – the word is spreading

Word is spreading around the world about the forthcoming Panorama programme – Monday 29 January 2007, BBC One 20.30 or on the interent here.

These three websites are just a few of the many now carrying the story around the world:

The British Medical Journal

Alliance for Human Research Protection

Clinical Psychology and Psychiatry

Panorama will show how GSK had: “written up” the pediatric Paxil trial for publication; “bought and manipulated (apparently willingly) opinion formers; worked to promote the product for use in children (although it was not, and never has been, licensed for such use);” and how the information about the safety and efficacy of Paxil was distorted in letters to prescribers, in advice to their sales force, and in messages to the media.
