Re: Tamiflu: “a nice little earner”

I find it rather bizarre that this very important, and rather controversial, topic has more pages of comment than research data in the printed version of the BMJ. We have a 1 page summary of the important paper from the Cochrane review, but 4 pages of editorial/news, and 5 pages of further comment under "open data".

PLEASE - let the intelligent reader make their own judgement on the hard data by publishing the full article in the paper version to be read and considered at length...
