Adverse Events of Drug Company Sponsored Drug Studies.
Filmed at the BioTech 2005 Counter Conference in Philadelphia between June 18th -21st; this panel discussion video Features Pedro Rodriguez (Action Alliance for Senior Citizens); Beth McConnel (Pennsylvania Public Interest Research Group: PennPIRG) on VIOXX; Adam Tsai, MD (Physicians for a Natonal Healthcare Program) and Mike Susko (Citizens for Responsible Care and Research).
Drug Companies buy FDA approval for drugs like VIOXX with hefty fees that are necessary to fund the agency and they use partial discloser and outright lies in clinical tests supporting their products benefits. They are driven by profit; employing an army of professional liars to persuade doctors to prescribe profitable medications to patients who don't need them, regardless of adverse effects.
