- 3rd June 2013"Last week, the National Audit Office disclosed that the Department of Health spent £424 million on the anti-flu drug Tamiflu. The money was used to purchase nearly 40 million units of the medicine between 2006-7 and 2012-13.
It also emerged that some £74 million of this stockpiled Tamiflu had to be destroyed because of poor record keeping." Tom Jefferson, Cochrane Author

- 4th April 2013"The Cochrane group has cautiously welcomed the move, pointing out that Roche has previously promised access to data. MacLean’s email follows GlaxoSmithKline’s decision to release 30 clinical study reports on its influenza drug zanamivir (Relenza) to the same Cochrane group. The group is concerned, however, that data redaction and other problems may make analysis and interpretation impossible." Deborah Cohen, BMJ
