There’s a very good post about Avandia over at Aftermath News.
It references the USA Today article “Diabetes drug called potential death risk.”
I know I’m a little behind with this breaking story, but I thought as Glaxo is looking in on Seroxat Secrets quite few times a day, I’d better give it something to think about –
Glaxo, you can run but you can’t hide anymore… the internet is seeing to that.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – pharma’s business model is broken – the science will not let it be sustained any longer. The age of the truly innovative blockbuster drug (and the massive profits) is over – that’s why drug companies continue to market sub-standard products to the public. And that is also the reason why one in every three people who works at Glaxo is in sales and marketing.
This simple fact shows where Big Pharma’s priorities lie – science and discovery have taken a back seat and the salesmen are driving.
