Category Archives: Vytorin Bounced in Europe for Kids EMEA Children Spared

Via a Tip from PM — "Silly Rabbit, Vytorin® is NOT for Kids!" Europe Nixes It — for Children

The FDANews is reporting that

the European Medicine Agency’s
(EMEA) Paediatric Committee has
decided not to recommend use of
Vytorin®. . . for treating high cholesterol

in children. Quoth FDANews:

The cholesterol drugs “do not
represent a significant therapeutic
benefit over existing treatments
,” the
EMEA says in a statement. . . .

. . . .The drugmaker markets Vytorin
through a joint venture with Schering-Plough. . . .

Recently, two congressmen asked the
FDA to release a new study they say
links Vytorin to cancer. . . .

Ouch. Common sense makes a comeback, yes?
