Capitalism and medicine don’t mix: an illustration

Actually, just about any of my posts here related to health illustrates that principle. But this example is particularly good. Johnson & Johnson are paying their lawyers to fight to keep clinical trial data on Risperdal hidden from the public.

According to Law360 (where I can’t read the full stories), “Plaintiffs in a cluster of product liability lawsuits…told a Pennsylvania judge on Tuesday that documents detailing the medication’s risks were too vital to the public interest to remain under seal as part of court proceedings.”

Johnson & Johnson disagrees.
