Worker Bees’ Daily Bites
It’s a beautiful day…but not for GlaxoSmithKline.
One Expensive Diabetes Rx
GSK shareholders were dismayed at analysts’ early estimate of what the Avandia debacle will cost: upwards of five billion . That’s a lot of yachts.
Newly-Divorced Men Have Highest Depression Rates
We’re not sure about the methodology here. Women, in general, have higher reported rates of depression, but researchers concede that this may simply mean women seek treatment more readily than do men. The situation gets flipped, however, when it comes to divorce: while women typically face economic hardship, men suffer in greater numbers from depression. Is this a case of men seeking help for depression that was already there, now that they are without the social support system of a marriage? Or are men genuinely worse off after a divorce than women? (Scientists already know that marriage tends to benefit men more than women; fewer men seek divorce and marriage is excellent for men’s mental health.) Touchy, touchy subject – no wonder it’s grabbing headlines.
What are your thoughts?
A Second Dud for GlaxoSmithKline
Remember when Mark blogged about the dangers of Alli , the new alleged fat-loss pill? And remember when he debunked the bad science  behind this oily-spotting drug? (Yech!) GSK is standing by the release of Alli . Good luck with that one, guys!
