Wyeth Letter To Supreme Court re Waxman Report

Here's some breaking news:

Wyeth has just hand-delivered this letter to the Supreme Court responding to the report prepared for Representative Henry Waxman about which we posted yesterday.

Wyeth's letter makes these points:

1. The report is entitled to no persuasive weight, because it was written only by the majority committee staff and was not adopted by any full committee.

2. The report actually supports Wyeth's position about the meaning of the "change being effected" (or "CBE") regulation.

3. The report selectively quotes at least one e-mail.

This blogging stuff really has us pinned down today. How will we ever find time to go trick or treating?

Sounds to me that the FDA is trying to get out of doing their job. If they can't or won't handle the labeling properly and safely, perhaps the FDA as we know it should be dissolved and a new form in the government chain proposed.
