Drug Safety Alarm: "Something Big" Coming?

If you attended our FDA/CMS Summit last week, it was great seeing you. If you missed it, shame on you. The keynote address by Cleveland Clinic cardiologist Steve Nissen on the state of the FDA stirred up a lot of controversy, not surprisingly.

However, one thing we didn't hear in his remarks could be more worrisome to the biopharmaceutical industry than what he actually said. A little birdie told us at the meeting to prepare "for something big" to be released this week.

We have no idea what the "something" could be. Do you? I will say that the last time a little birdie told us at The RPM Report that Steve Nissen was up to "something big," the "something" turned out to be Avandia.
