“EU-nuch in the Humira-m”

David Healy August 7, 2013
“When reports come in from trials or come in spontaneously companies can split up the coding of an event so that a suicidal reaction to a drug might be coded under anxiety, or agitation, or akathisia, or abnormal thoughts, or depression, or suicidal ideation, or suicidal behaviour, or even nausea. They can be miscoded as happening on placebo in trials when in fact they are linked to active treatment or they can be attributed to another drug the patient is on rather than the company’s drug.”
