by diamondseeker2006 » Jan 17, 2018 My point really was that drugs are approved without all the studies being reported, and according to @partgypsy, there have been some positive developments on the reporting front. The problem with the Tami-flu wasn't just the adverse affects, it was that it wasn't necessarily effective in most cases. "After five years, Roche and the EMA opened up (the FDA has not, and did not respond to requests, both from Cochrane and Newsweek, to explain why). What Cochrane uncovered was more than 70 Tamiflu trials and well over 100,000 pages of unpublished reports. Among them were many trials where the results were negative or inconclusive. With this more complete picture of the testing, Cochrane concluded the trials don’t prove that Tamiflu prevents hospitalizations, contagiousness or complications. The only thing it definitely does do, Cochrane said, is shorten the duration of symptoms, by about a day." and.... "Many agencies, including the CDC, did not change their positions after the report." That is one reason I don't have blind faith in the CDC.
