It could have been worse...could have been posted on Sermo? BD
A Texas doctor leaked confidential research to the makers of the popular diabetes drug Avandia weeks before a study was published tying the drug to higher heart risks, the scientific journal Nature reported Wednesday. "Why I sent it is a mystery. I don't really understand it. I wasn't feeling well. It was bad judgment," Nature quotes Haffner as saying.
Dr. Steven Haffner, of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, broke confidentiality rules for medical journal peer reviewers when he gave the Avandia study to GlaxoSmithKline PLC 17 days before it was published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the Nature report says.
