There are an awful amount of Internal documents from the Kilker case that have been sealed, they will remain sealed if Glaxo settle the appeal - which, they probably will.
Personally, I think this is appalling behaviour by GlaxoSmithKline. Lyam Kilker was born with heart defects [3 different heart defects as it happens] - A jury found GlaxoSmithKline's Paxil [Seroxat] to be the causation of his heart defects. Glaxo appeal the decision - yet settle other 'birth defect cases'. Meantime, the family of Lyam Kilker are plunged into another long wait which, I think, will result in an out of court settlement some time down the line.
It's one thing to manufacture a drug that harms a child, but to then punish the family and child because they won at trial is pretty despicable even by GlaxoSmithKline's standards.
Everyone, even GSK, have a right to appeal but we all know what the outcome of this tragic case is going to be - Glaxo will settle, they cannot afford for the sealed documents to be made public property.
My heart goes out to Lyam Kilker and his loving family. All his mother is guilty of is taken Paxil for what can only be deemed as mild depression. She never knew the damage it could cause her fetus because GlaxoSmithKline never told her... more importantly, they never told her doctor.
The case of Lyam Kilker was a 'test' case - basically Glaxo dipping their toes in the water to see how hot it is. It appears their toes were scolded.
Expect settlements with the other 630 birth defect cases they dispute.
Did they know of the dangers of pregnant women taking Paxil?
Watch the video.
The first 30 seconds is audio only, while the team prepare to go on air. The video is uncut and exclusive to Seroxat Sufferers blog.
Special thanks to the production team at Law Journal TV for passing this on to me and granting me permission to use on Seroxat Sufferers.
After watching the video, take a look at the files that have been made public from the recent Kilker v GSK trial, including a testimony from Ex-GSK executive Jane Nieman which was pretty damning for GlaxoSmithKline.
The MHRA have access to the documents. They refuse to act on them. A strong message of support for GlaxoSmithKline it would appear.
SEROXAT SUFFERERS STAND UP AND BE COUNTED

"This petition is to bring criminal charges against GlaxoSmithKline. The medication they made has caused numerous deaths not to mention birth defects. Many babies have died or been born with horrible birth defects caused by the use of Paxil [Seroxat]. Information that Paxil caused birth defects was hidden therefore taking the right to make an informed decision was taken away from Mothers. GlaxoSmithKline needs to be held criminally accountable for their misinformation and blantant lies. It is for all these babies to have justice."
