Swiss pharmaceutical company Roche (ROG: SIX) bilked US federal and state governments out of $1.5 billion by misrepresenting clinical studies. The company falsely claimed that its popular influenza medicine Tamiflu was effective at containing potential pandemics, according to a unsealed whistleblower lawsuit.
The lawsuit states that the company published articles falsely stating that Tamiflu reduces complications, severity, hospitalizations, mortality and transmission of influenza. The pharmaceutical giant then utilized those misleading articles to aggressively market Tamiflu to the government for pandemic use. In turn, federal and state governments spent about $1.5 billion to buy Tamiflu to flight influenza pandemics, according to the complaint.
“As alleged in the complaint – Tamiflu does not do what Roche promised,” said attorney Mark Lanier of the Houston-based Lanier Law Firm. “Roche hid this fact for many years by selectively citing its studies and suppressing the data about Tamiflu. The company utilized lobbyists, key opinion leaders and ghostwriters to promote Tamiflu with a deceptive promise to governments fearful of an influenza pandemic.”
Tamiflu is linked to many side effects from hallucinations to death
Public health researchers have been questioning the safety data on Tamiflu for over 11 years. What they’ve found is that Tamiflu doesn’t support all claims that the drugmaker made. In fact , that studies were manipulated, and thus, Tamiflu was falsely marketed. Not to mention the fact that it is linked to a lot of side effects from hallucinations to death.
This type of behavior isn’t limited to Tamiflu — it happens with antidepressants, cholesterol meds, quackxines, painkillers, and pretty much everything else.
