The Voices Heard Round The World – The November 5th FDA Meeting

On Nov. 5th, the true stars of our community took to the podium at the FDA to tell their personal stories. I, along with countless others, were humbled and honored. This meeting represented a huge step in the progress we are making to gain complete recognition of the travesty that the fluoroquinolone class of pharmaceuticals has wrought upon society, to achieve justice for those that have been damaged by these drugs, and to prevent future unnecessary pain and suffering not only for this generation, but for generations to come.

Yet Another FDA Failure: PatientsLikeMe®

Why would the FDA make such an outrageous decision to enter into an unprecedented agreement to monitor post-marketing drug surveillance with a private company run by ex-pharmaceutical executives? The FDA would be better off looking at its FAERS data. If they did, they would see drug signals that they have ignored, especially for FQ’s.

Researching Fluoroquinolone Toxicity: The Personal Cost of Research

“You can’t do what I do and think the drug companies don’t notice you.” With the media scrutiny and the Citizen Petitions filed over the last year you can bet that Bennett has gotten the attention of some very powerful entities; entities that are going to push back in an effort to silence or undermine our message.
