E-DRUG: Glaxo to pay $3 bn for largest health care fraud in US (8)
------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear All

I strongly support the need for punitive action. At the very least, this
represents a human rights abuse - surely this is a contravention of
international human rights codes?   Another significant issue is the extent
to which this has undermined public confidence in evidence based medicine,
and, more importantly, the health care providers who prescribe and dispense
these products.  They are the safety gate keepers of the community and
incidents like this raise questions about professional reputations.
