The U.S. Department of Justice has sued the pharmaceutical company Forest Labs about the marketing of the antidepressant Celexa for use by children. It’s an affair about bribery, illegal marketing and cover-up of a drug trial with negative results.
The company has set aside $170 million to settle the civil aspects of the matter with the government. That does not cover the potential criminal law violations.
What has not been told is the important role played by the renowned European Professor of Psychiatry Dr. Anne-Liis von Knorring in this affair.
She not only helped the company to cover up the bad results of her clinical trial of Celexa, she also actively misled doctors and the public about it.
