Testing of Letrozole on women flayed

By Our Staff Correspondent

NEW DELHI Dec. 21. The National Federation of Indian Women has expressed anguish and anger over reported illegal testing of Letrozole on four hundred women in six cities across the country.

In a statement issued here today, the NFIW national secretary, Annie Raja, said it was shocking to know that despite information on alleged illegal marketing by the Sun Pharma and the Dabur India, the Government did not seize the drug or take any action.

The National Federation of Indian Women demanded immediate cancellation of licences of the two pharmaceutical companies and the arrest of the doctors who conducted the tests, she said.

The issue assumes importance since the Union Health Minister, Sushma Swaraj, had assured the House on December 9 that the two companies had been warned against marketing Letrozole for treatment of infertility.
