Letter to Stacy London

September 4, 2013 • Leave a comment

Five weeks ago Johanna Ryan and Kim Witczak wrote a Letter to StacyLondon which can be downloaded here. It covered Stacy’s role in AbbVie’s Humiraverse. It wasn’t a critical letter. People in Humiraverses can’t throw stones – the company will always win.

Stacy is probably better placed than anyone to make a difference to AbbVie and Pharma’s current campaign to close down access to clinical trial data to everyone. She would be the perfect person to deliver our Petition to Richard Gonzalez, asking him to call off his legal action against the European Medicines Agency’s  (EMA) policy of open access to trial data.

It would be a huge story if she embraced the Data Access Cause. She could be our Joan of Arc – Jeanne d’Arc. People who pay no heed to these things normally would sit up and take notice of something like this. Even if we lose access to the data in the current battle, Stacy’s involvement might win the war by getting enough people to say “Enough”.  We have a Dream.

Report your experience with prescription drug side effects

Although drug side effects are known to be a leading cause of death and disability, less than 5% of serious drug side effects are reported. Our mission is to capture this missing data directly from patients to help make medicines safer for all of us.

When you report your drug side effect, you also receive a free RxISK Report to take to your doctor or pharmacist. This report serves as a means to initiate a more detailed discussion of your treatment.

At the end of the reporting process, we also provide you with the option to take the information you have reported on RxISK and automatically create a form to send to your country’s health authority — for example, the FDA in the United States, Health Canada in Canada, and Yellow Card in the United Kingdom (more countries will be added soon).
