They even have a video featuring their Chief Medical Officer, Dr Ellen Strahlman. Again, no apology.
In fact the statement from Strahlman is littered with the kind of phrases that this company has rolled out time and time again when brought to task over its products.
"All medicines have risks as well as benefits."
"We believe that Avandia has helped millions of people manage their diabetes, and that it is a safe and effective treatment option when used appropriately."
"At GSK patient safety comes first."
The best being:
"If you are someone with type 2 Diabetes taking any of these medicines, again please, do not stop taking your medicine, but contact your healthcare professional at your earliest convenience to discuss the impact of these decisions on your treatment."
It's almost as if they are sticking two fingers up to the regulator [hey, can't say I blame them there]
GlaxoSmithKline's corporate motto is "DO MORE, FEEL BETTER, LIVE LONGER"
I'm beginning to wonder if the corporate motto is aimed at GSK staff rather than the public.
