Madness Radio: On Trial with Alison Bass

MIA Blogger Will Hall interviews fellow MIA Blogger and journalist Alison Bass on Madness Radio about Study 329, a placebo-controlled clinical trial of Paxil (paroxetine) for the treatment of children and adolescents, and the subsequent lawsuit against GlaxoSmithKline that followed.  From Madness Radio: “When GlaxoSmithKline was caught lying about the risks of its blockbuster anti-depressant Paxil, it set off ongoing investigations. How did New York state take on one of the world’s most powerful companies? Was NY Governor Eliot Spitzer driven out by his corporate enemies?  Pulitzer-nominated Boston Globe journalist Alison Bass, author of Side Effects: A Prosecutor, A Whistleblower, And A Bestselling Antidepressant On Trial, discusses legal battles to clean up drug company corruption, including pay-offs to the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill.”
