So far, just 48 votes are in, but there's no clear consenus on the good doctor, who has developed a reputation in some circles as a drugslayer:
· 23 respondents, or 48 percent, say Nissen is a hero; · 21 respondents, or 44 percent, say he's a big fat zero, · and 4 people can't decide and simply say he's an 'other.'
Hurry, this may be your last chance to validate Chuck Grassley, who wants JP Garnier's scalp (or what's left of it) for the way Glaxo handled Avandia data. Conversely, you can assuage Scott Gottlieb, who says the New England Journal of Medicine committed journalistic malpractice by running Nissen's study (although his editorial* in The Wall Street Journal omitted his ties to big pharma).
