No spokesperson from the MHRA or EMA bothered to make any sort of comment. However, earlier today, The Guardian reported that the MHRA had said it had not passed on the recommendation to withdraw Avandia because it would create confusion, and was awaiting a decision by the EMA.
Doncha just love those limp-wristed chappies.
My only surprise is that MHRA officials can sit down, they must have so many splinters pierced into their backsides from all that fence sitting!
Meantime, GSK, Avandia's manufacturer, have urged patients not to panic over the Panorama programme.
Don't panic? I've just watched a half hour documentary that has highlighted how a drug being prescribed by the NHS can cause heart attacks!
Maybe they should have contested the Avandia lawsuits rather than make settlements in the US. Seems to me that it was they who were panicking. $460 million worth of panic to be exact.
This one goes out to the MHRA

Big thanks to Shelley Jofre for once again telling it like it is.
