« Giuliani's Bit of Trouble (Updated) | Main | Looking Under The Rug: Whatever Came of... »

December 03, 2007



Thank you for addressing this topic. Quite frankly, I attempted to cover this issue on my own blog, but as I stared at my blank screen I became convinced that I’d finally slipped into a full-blown psychotic episode. Only in a bizarre parallel universe, where up is down and sense is nonsensical, could one federal agency work to allow off-label marketing, while at the same time, another federal agency has numerous active lawsuits against Big Pharma for their engagement in the exact same practice.

And, of course, thanks for linking to my blog!

Oh shock me. My hubby works in DSMB data management. You'd be surprised what goes on. The FDA has a long history of being scumbags.

I agree about the long-history part. Part of the FDA's troubles seem to have started in 1992, with the passage of the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (not sure if I remember the name exactly), which directly tied FDA revenues to drug company dollars.
