On 22 November 2012 Donald MacLean wrote to Professor Chris Del Mar in his capacity as coordinating editor of the Cochrane Acute Respiratory Infections Group.

The letter, attached below, says Roche is to set up a multi-party advisory board to review the totality of Tamiflu data to agree on a "statistical analysis plan outlining the types of analyses that would be useful in a public health discussion on Tamiflu."

Also attached is the Cochrane response from Tom Jefferson, sent on 26 November 2012.
