New Celexa and Paxil Documents Posted179 new Drug Industry Documents
were posted today.
- 78 new Celexa documents
- 101 Paxil Litigation, Adult Suicide documents - This new collection of documents comes from Paxil litigation regarding adult suicide. Lawsuits alleged Glaxo SmithKline (GSK) was aware of the high rate of suicidal behavior in adults during clinical trials of Paxil. GSK argued that because the FDA did not mandate GSK warn about the suicidality risk, it could not have warned or disclosed these risks any sooner. GSK argued that Paxil’s FDA-approved label shielded the pharmaceutical company from liability for failing to warn doctors and patients of that elevated suicidal behavior risk, a legal defense called 'preemption.'

Announcing our New and Improved Industry Documents Bibliography
The UCSF Industry Documents Library has been hard at work for this month's release of documents and features.
1) 825 new tobacco documents were posted to the Truth Tobacco Industry Documents yesterday.
2) The improved Industry Documents Bibliography!
Our Bibliography is a running list of papers and publications created using our industry documents. It has long been a helpful tool for research and education and we are excited to unveil the new interface today.
The Bibliography now lives on the Industry Documents Library site and can be found by clicking on "Bibliography" in the menu bar.
Depending upon which industry you start from (IDL, tobacco or drug), you will see citations for publications and papers based upon that specific industry archive's documents. For instance, if you access the Bibliography from the main IDL home page you will interact with citations from both Tobacco and Drug documents but if you access the Bibliography from the Tobacco area, you will only interact with tobacco document citations.
Key features for the new Bibliography
Our new Bibliography interface allows you to search in the citations for keywords, authors and titles and also allows you to facet results by Category and Reference Type. Click on the title link or the URL in the Link field to access the publication directly.
- "Newly Added" citations will be tagged with the "newly added" status so that these recent citations can be found quickly by users.
At this time we have 11 newly added citations to the Industry Documents Bibliography.
- Direct links to the documents cited
You will note in each citation record, there is a "Document Cited" field which holds the IDs of industry documents used as primary sources. If you click on one of the IDs in the "Documents Cited" field, you will be taken to the document record.
Conversely, if you are searching in the documents, you will notice links to a Bibliography citation from the search results and the document view if the document has been cited in one or more papers.
The new and improved Industry Documents Bibliography reflects all industries and will grow as we grow our document collections. As you browse the citations and take a look around, please let us know how it's working for you and if you have any suggestions.
