Executive Summary

The Pharmacovigilance Advisory Committee, which oversees prescription drug safety issues in India, plans to take up several drugs Dec. 17. High on the list is GlaxoSmithKline's Avandia (rosiglitazone) Type 2 diabetes drug, which recently was required by the U.S. FDA to carry a "black box" warning because of associations with heart attacks. The committee also plans to add another 20 centers to the three-year-old National Pharmacovigilance Program, said M. Venkateswarlu, drug controller general.
