Drug Secrecy

How can drugs which were prescribed to millions of people turn out to be worthless? A lot of it has to do with the fact that drug companies do their own testing and are not always candid about the results.

In the February 17 edition of the Independent, Jeremy Laurance writes, "Over the past 30 years, as the costs have mounted, so have the pressures to protect new chemical agents which could become potential blockbusters. Secrecy became the pharmaceutical industry's watchword as it sought to control publication of trials and even manipulate results. Cancer drugs introduced in the 1990s claimed to offer major benefits which later turned out to be more apparent than real. Evidence published in The Journal of the American Medical Association showed that 38% of independent studies of the drugs reached unfavorable conclusions about them, compared with just 5% of studies funded by the pharmaceutical industry."
