    to resume its stalled pilot program to disclose Clinical Study Reports. Making disclosure mandatory would increase transparency around drug approvals: (link: https://www.bmj.com/content/360/bmj.k294/rr-1) bmj.com/content/360/bm… via

    FDA to begin releasing clinical study reports in pilot programme


    In January 2018 the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) launched a pilot project designed to enhance transparency around drug approval and assess the value of publicly disclosing Clinical Study Reports (CSRs).

    Further, CSRs have enormous potential to improve public health by identifying unpublished, underreported, and misreported trials in the published medical literature. Consider the case of paroxetine (Paxil).

    Despite the value of disclosing CSRs, a year after its launch the pilot project appears to have stalled. No additional CSRs have been posted on FDA’s website.

  2. Has anybody else had a security warning blocking which blocks access to the ‘facist brand’ link? There is a way of unblocking apparently but I don;t know how – if any body has had the same security warning and unblocked the list could you write it out please?

  3. No childhood vaccines in the US schedule have been tested against placebo:


    ASD in schools up more than 10 times in real terms in two decades (the government CMO, Dame Sally Davies, waffles):

    For the first time, Gøtzsche pulls back the covers on this unscrupulous process, giving us all access to secret recordings, which reveal how his own organisation betrayed him and mislead millions of people after Cochrane cowered to the threats and intimidation from his critics.

    This is the fascinating story about institutional corruption in one of the world’s most venerated charities, which ultimately led to the worst show trial in academia you can imagine.

  5. Too GOOD, to MISS …

    RxISK introduced Krista Hartman with a Series of Posts

    She is off-again, with a dramatic, brilliantly written narra, narra, narrative and the wench GETS-IT

    ‘I was part of the well-documented tidal wave of profit-propelled bipolar diagnoses following the expansion of criteria in the Allen Frances-piloted, infamous DSM-IV. I could expound on this subject for hours; I’ll let better writers do that for me here. Dr. David Healey’s well-regarded, 2006 PloS Med article “The Latest Mania: Selling Bipolar Disorder” is a concise explanation of what occurred forensically. It was my ‘gateway’ article and it made me weep; here was someone who knew. Gary Greenberg’s 2013 The Book of Woe: The DSM and the Unmaking of Psychiatry is the longer explanation; equally entertaining and grotesque. My perspective was very different by then; I was cynical and tougher, but no less terrified and trapped.
    I am the wrench in the works of the psychiatric industry’s well-oiled machine


  6. My steady motion forward with my narrative and this idea, strengthens my resolve towards the goal of establishing an outlet for help. I received affirmation from Dr. David Healy’s RxISK.org website (safety and transparency), Dr. Paula Caplan, and now Robert Whitaker’s MIA site (science, psychiatry, and social justice). These are significant contributors to the principle subject and it’s many tributaries; it’s a BIG subject with many topics and I’m scratching at the door.
