They've Got Gonads



Amazing. This ad as found on MDLinx.com's cardiology section for Lilly's Effient (prasugrel) before the drug's even approved by the FDA and despite the controversy swirling around about their advisory panel's approval meeting.

Lilly wouldn't have an inside line, would they?

Ahhh, from what I'm told, the FDA pretty much depends on drug companies to regulate themselves anyway. Hopefully that'll all change with the new administration.

Eli Lilly can kill and maim thousands of people with Zyprexa, be held criminally liable for it, pay out millions in fines for other offenses, and this surpises you? Not me. Not in the least.

It sickens me, but it doesn't surprise me.
