The drugs don't work, they just make you worse


That's what I like. An inquiry that concludes the bleedin' obvious:
this product showed a pharmacological effect in man which was not seen in pre-clinical tests in animals at much higher doses.
Well, dur. A bit like saying that the 7/7 bombings "happened because some nasty men blew up some bombs on the Tube and killed people. Oh, and a bus."

The only potential interesting outcome of this fiasco would have something to do with the uselessness of animal testing, but we're all supposed to be in favour of that, these days, so no one's making the obvious conclusion (except the usual suspects, of course).
