Glaxo and the Secret Avandia Tapes
Jim Edwards of BNET has wrote an excellent article regarding GlaxoSmithKline's diabetes drug, Avandia. As some of you know Avandia has hit the headlines with regard to its link to heart attacks. Glaxo, of course, deny this.
Edwards points out that Steve Nissen, the Cleveland Clinic researcher who first went public with a study showing that Avandia increases heart-attack risk, secretly taped a meeting he had with GSK officials and caught them dissembling.
A couple of names spring up in Jim Edward's article, notably Tachi Yamada and Chris Viehbacher
I urge you to read Edward's article over at BNET.
