Dia­betes Drug Pulled Off the Mar­ket

The US Food and Drug Admin­is­tra­tion (FDA), on March 22, 2000 pulled the dia­betes drug Rezulin off the mar­ket. The drug had been used by more than 700,000 patients and been respon­si­ble for more than 61 deaths. Dr. Sid­ney Wolfe, a critic of the FDA for being too slow, said the drug should have been taken off the mar­ket long ago. He char­ac­ter­ized the drug as, “one of the most dan­ger­ous drugs.” The prob­lem with the drug was tox­i­c­ity to the liver. In an inter­est­ing response, Warner Lam­bert, the maker of Rezulin, has vol­un­tar­ily agreed to stop sell­ing the drug, but they did com­ment that they felt the ben­e­fits of the drug out­weighed the risks. I am sure that is of lit­tle con­so­la­tion to the fam­i­lies of the 61 peo­ple who died.
