OK, NOW WHAT? J&J’s COVID vaccine is being promoted by the media to have a 98% immune system response. Will it lead to an early approval with limited testing or will J&J ensure the vaccine goes thru thorough testing?
KEY THOUGHT: I’m not sure how much of Mr Brill’s article on J&J is 100% accurate, however, it’s sure to fan the fires of pharma distrust ever higher. The industry has to do a much better job of intolerance to any illegal marketing and fines cannot be just an expense line in a budget sheet.
SUMMARY: The Huffington Post Highline and journalist Steven Brill today began publishing “America’s Most Admired Law Breaker,” a 15-part series detailing how Johnson & Johnson took an anti-psychotic drug, Risperdal, initially intended only for the treatment of psychotic disorders, and put it in the hands of children and the elderly in violation of FDA restrictions.
