Steptoe & Johnson – Seroxat FOI request to the MHRA

It seems that you can’t keep away from Bob Fiddman’s blog Seroxat sufferers for too long, otherwise you’ll miss something.

Following on from my last post it seems a law firm made an interesting Freedom of information request to the MHRA about Seroxat:

From: [redacted]
Sent: 15 December 2005
To: Pharmacovigilance, [MHRA]
Cc: Subject: Request for Information

Dear Sirs
Attention: Pharmacovigilance Team

I wish to make a request for information pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 for the following information:

1. please identify the statute(s) and regulations which obligate the pharmaceutical industry to report suspected serious adverse drug reactions to the MHRA, and which include a definition of “serious” adverse drug reactions; and

2. a Drug Analysis Print for paroxetine [Seroxat/Paxil]which lists all of the adverse drug reactions which have been reported to the MHRA (and the former MCA) by all sources (including those reported by the marketing application holder) up to 1 May 2001.

I would prefer to receive the information electronically via email, but you may otherwise post the requested information to my attention at: Steptoe & Johnson, Clements House, 14-18 Gresham Street, London EC2V 7JE.

So who does Steptoe & Johnson work for I wonder…
