Consumer Group Sues FDA

A consumer protection group has filed a lawsuit against the Food and Drug Administration over the failure to remove a high-dose Alzheimer drug from the market. The group points to FDA research that shows that high doses of the drug Aricept "doesn't work better at controlling symptoms of moderate-to-severe Alzheimer's than two low doses" and can pose severe health risks to patients. The group filed a petition in May 2011 with the FDA to halt the sale of the high-dose drug but the FDA has done nothing, the suit says. Wire Report, The Olympian 09/05/2012
