Drug group campaigner to meet PM

Janice, over at Seroxat User Group, met with Texture, today:

Drug group campaigner to meet PM

I've only one comment to make, regarding the first bullet point, in the link, above:

"To know why - four years since it started - the investigation into GlaxoSmithKline is still ongoing. The MHRA, (the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency, the body that regulates medicines), is investigating an allegation that GSK withheld information on Seroxat having a higher suicide risk for under 18s. GSK denies this, saying Seroxat was never licensed for children.

Erm, JP, what's that got to do with the price of eggs? If the drug was never licensed for use by minors, then it wasn't for wont of trying on the part of GSK, was it? You had licences refused for paediatric users in both the US and the UK, didn't you - despite Marty's best efforts?

"Improve the quality of human life by enabling people to do more, feel better and live longer"
