Astra Asks for "More Teeth" from FDA
In an upcoming speech, AZ's CEO will ask for an FDA with "teeth," so it can do its regulatory job more efficiently. The Times of London has it here:
Readers will remember last year's lurid emails in the WSJ from AZ employeess discussing studies they buried or camouflaged, particularly concerning Seroquel and its links with obesity/diabetes. They are in a post below that I can't find (someone will). So, I suppose, this request makes sense: "Stop me before I sleaze again."
Anyway, if the teeth don't cut it, the DOJ may have an alternative approach.
