There Might Be A Big Corruption Scandal Surrounding America’s Dangerous New Painkiller
Ever since a coalition of doctors came out against the controversial new painkiller Zohydro, health officials have been questioning how the drug got approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the first place.
Now, two senators are questioning the ethics of a series of meetings between drug companies and federal regulators, MedPage Today reports.
Senators Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and David Vitter (R-La.) want answers about what they call “pay-to-play” meetings in which pharmaceutical manufacturers allegedly shelled out thousands of dollars to meet with FDA officials who oversee safety regulations on painkillers. The senators suggest these meetings might have helped Zohydro get approved by the FDA despite an advisory committee voting against it.
