Alison Bass, author of Side Effects: A Prosecutor, a Whistleblower, and a Bestselling Antidepressant on Trial, has been named a winner of the 2009 NASW Science in Society Awards. [press release]
I remember when Alison sent me a copy of her book and how eager I was to read it. It reads like a Grisham novel and one has to keep pinching oneself as a reminder that this book is not fiction. It's a true account of how GlaxoSmithKline suppressed information regarding the use of Paxil in children. More so, Alison takes you inside the litigation process, a mechanical maze of the American dollar and how powerful it can be...and what lengths pharmaceutical companies will go to to 'save face', or rather save their products from being hurt financially.
The Paxil debacle should never be forgotten, questions should be asked about the part GlaxoSmithKline played in keeping data from the public eye - prosecutions should follow. Side Effects: A Prosecutor, a Whistleblower, and a Bestselling Antidepressant on Trial is, and will always be, a testament in how deceit will always be uncovered. The truth will always out.
I'd like to congratulate Alison Bass on being part of the process in seeking the truth. A woman who stood up to be counted.
