The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg: Accutane, The Truth That Had to be Told by Doug Bremner

In 2001 the father of young man in Ireland who had committed suicide approached Dr. Doug Bremner as Professor of Psychiatry & Radiology at Emory University to see if he could find a causal link between the drug and depression. His findings were that the drug did have an effect on the brain likely to cause acute depression in some patients, which was not surprising as it is a molecular cousin of Vitamin A which is known to cause depression in excessive quantities. One might think that Hoffman-La Roche would have welcomed these findings. After all, no-one was doubting that Accutane was an extremely effective remedy in many cases, it was just that it appeared to have lethal side-effects in others. You might like to think again on that one. 'The Goose That Laid The Golden Egg' is the account of what Hoffman-La Roche did next, which was to prosecute a determined, energetic and vindictive campaign against Dr. Bremner designed to suppress his findings and destroy his career and livelihood. "This book is particularly scary because it is a factual account by Dr. Bremner and details the lengths that a pharmaceutical company, in this case Roche, will go to to protect their cash cow, even though they were aware from early on that this drug could cause people to kill themselves and others." "The author takes the reader along on his deeply emotional and poignant journey in a driven quest to find the answers he longed for since age 4 and the untimely death of his beloved mother... never giving up on the people we love, or yourself, and standing up for something that is right, is the core of [this book]"
