Lone Wolfe: Drug Industry Critic Ends Tenure As Advisory Committee Member With Rare Decisive Vote

This article was originally published in RPM Report

Executive Summary

Sidney Wolfe’s stint as permanent member of the Drug Safety and Risk Management Advisory Committee ended May 31; his final meeting was the May 23 review of Xarelto for ACS. That gave him a second chance to vote against the product. A look back at Wolfe’s tenure shows he was a sure “no” vote when he sat on a panel—but that his service can hardly be construed as having damaged the industry.
