An exposé of the corruption of medication by the pharmaceutical business at each stage, from exploiting the susceptible destitute for drug testing, by means of manipulation of analysis information, to illness mongering and selling medicine that do extra hurt than good.
Authors, Professor Jon Jureidini and Dr Leemon McHenry, made crucial contributions to exposing the scientific misconduct in two notorious trials of antidepressants. Ghostwritten publications of those trials have been extremely influential in prescriptions of paroxetine (Paxil) and citalopram (Celexa) in paediatric and adolescent despair, but each trials (Glaxo Smith Kline's paroxetine research 329 and Forest Laboratories' citalopram research CIT-MD-18) critically misrepresented the efficacy and security information.
The Phantasm of Proof-Based mostly Drugs supplies an in depth account of those research and argues that medication desperately must re-evaluate its relationship with the pharmaceutical business. With out a foundation for impartial analysis of the outcomes of randomised, placebo-controlled scientific trials, there could be no confidence in evidence-based medication.
Science calls for rigorous, crucial examination and particularly extreme testing of hypotheses to perform correctly, however that is precisely what’s missing in tutorial medication.
