Pharmaceutical industry condemned by Dr David Healy, the director of psychological medicine at the University of Cardiff

Pharmaceutical industry condemned by psychologist


"The pharmaceutical industry has been criticised by a leading psychologist for misrepresenting the efficacy of the anti depression drug Seroxat.

Patients have been "betrayed" by the misrepresentation of the drug, said Dr David Healy, the director of psychological medicine at the University of Cardiff.

His comments came in the wake of a Panorama investigation that accused GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) of hiding evidence that Seroxat had performed badly in clinical trials.

Dr Healy said: "We are in a situation now where people who are ill generally have been deeply betrayed by the whole process, deeply betrayed by the pharmaceutical companies and by all the experts that have been willing to actually lend their name to the process.""
