FED: Medical journal accused of suppressing drug warning

A taxpayer-funded medical journal has been accused of suppressing criticisms of flaws
in consumer medical handouts that could have fatal consequences for thousands of Australians.

The criticisms .. made in a paper by five medical specialists .. reveal the alleged
problems with the official advice for the drugs Cortate and Hysone remain unresolved ..

more than a year after the concerns were first published.

The journal .. Australian Prescriber .. faces criticism after it refused to publish the paper.

A spokesman for the journal has told News limited the decision not to publish the paper
was made by the editorial executive committee and a full explanation was given to the
authors.

The journal says it stands by the committee's decision.
