[e-drug] Prescrire on public report on Mediator disaster

E-drug: Prescrire on public report on Mediator disaster
-------------------------------------------------------

Dear colleagues

Prescrire applauds the report on benfluorex-Mediator° from France’s Inspection 
Générale des Affaires Sociales or IGAS, the public welfare inspectorate. The 
IGAS report details the unacceptable behaviour of the drug company Servier, as 
well as the numerous dysfunctions, equally unacceptable, on the part of drug 
regulatory bodies. These behaviours exposed patients to totally unjustified 
risks and resulted in a large number of victims.
