RxISK Seeks Reports from AbbVie Customers as part of campaign launched today by Dr. David Healy
Date:7/15/2013

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) July 15, 2013

RxISK.org, the first free independent website for researching and reporting prescription drug side effects, is helping a campaign to capture patient reported side effects of a range of drugs sold by the pharmaceutical company AbbVie - the recent spun-off entity of Abbott Laboratories.

The campaign was announced by Dr. David Healy, a leading drug safety advocate and psychopharmacologist, in his recent blog post on DavidHealy.org.

As reported in the PharmaTimes May 1, 2013, AbbVie and InterMune sued the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to prevent the release of data and obtained an interim injunction to prevent the release. Bloomberg reports July 12, 2013, that this interim decision is being appealed by EMA.

(Interim decision see C-389/13 P, EMA v. AbbVie, C-390/13 P, EMA v. InterMune U.K. and Others.)

"Since most drugs are marketed and used globally this data could have global significance," says Dr. Healy. Healy is among the growing group of high profile advocates for access to complete data.

Dr. Healy says, “data transparency would be an important first step in helping patients and their doctors make informed decisions on the benefits and risks of prescription medicines by enabling independent validation. We urge everyone to make their voices heard on this issue”.

“Side effects know no borders and in this campaign we want to use RxISK.org to collect patient
