FDA Knew About Avandia Dangers 5 Years Ago


Public Citizen, (http://www.citizen.org/publications/release.cfm?ID=7523), a national non-profit public interest organization reported today that the US Government as far back as 2002, knew about the potential of Avandia to lead to heart failure.

Public Citizen was able to secure a FDA memorandum, (http://www.citizen.org/documents/AvandiaMemo.pdf), from Health and Human Services Team Leader and Drug Safety Evaluator, Lahn Green to David Orloff, Director of Metabolic and Endocrine Drug Products at HHS that warned of the connection between rosiglitazone, commonly known as Avandia(registered trademark) and congestive heart failure.

Yet we the public (victims?) are just finding out about the dangers of the drug today. In a war, the fatalities that one comes to expect is known as an, "acceptable risk". Apparently, the government was willing to wait five years and create an acceptable risk of death by not fully advising patients of the potential risks of Avandia. What other chemicals approved by the FDA are killing us today with their full knowledge and acquiescence. Is the profit and kickback motive that strong?
