LONDON - The pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline says it has advised medical staff in Canada to not use one batch of swine flu vaccine for fear it may trigger life-threatening allergies.

Fox 5 News spoke with a GlaxoSmithKline official who says the batch is on a 'voluntary hold' and does not affect the United States.

Spokeswoman Gwenan White said Tuesday the company issued the advice after reports that one batch of the swine flu vaccine might have caused more allergic reactions than normal.

She says the affected batch contains 172,000 doses of the vaccine. She declined to say how many doses had been administered before the advice to stop using them was given.

White says GlaxoSmithKline wrote to Canadian healthcare professionals advising them to stop using the batch on Nov. 18. She says a total of 7.5 million doses of the vaccine have been distributed in Canada.

MYFOXNY.COM - Medical headlines for Wednesday, December 16.

Text of Dr. Sapna Parikh's report:

SWIN FLU VACCINE RECALL: Thousands of swine flu shots for children are recalled. I spoke with officials at the FDA and the Director of Immunizations at the CDC. Here's the deal-- this is not a safety issue. The issue is the vaccine's strength. Routine testing of the vaccines showed that the strength or potency of the vaccines had fallen slightly below required levels. The shots were made by Sanofi Pasteur and were distributed across the country including some in New York city and Nassau County.

All the doses are for kids-- aged 6 months to three years. What does this mean? Parents- if your child received the recalled vaccine, top health officials say nothing else needs to be done. The vaccine still works and kids who got it are still protected against the swine flu. Doctors who still have these recalled vaccines are being told to stop giving them. There is one important issue-- all the recalled vaccines were Thimerosol free. These are sought after by many parents who are concerned about links to autism. After this recall, there will be no Thimerosol- free vaccine option for kids under the age of two.

DRX 9000 a Hoax??!

As I have been telling patients for years......

AG: Firm fleeced docs for $100M

Florida’s Attorney General’s office has filed suit against a Tampa firm that it says made and sold more than 1,000 pricey back-pain therapy machines to physicians nationwide through “false, deceptive or misleading advertising.” Most of the doctors were chiropractors.

Defendants are Axiom Worldwide, President and CEO James J. Gibson Jr. and Vice President Nicholas Exarhos. The complaint says they co-founded the company and both participated in unlawful sales practices.

Among other misleading statements, the complaint filed Nov. 19 in Hillsborough Circuit Court says, Axiom called its DRX 9000 spinal decompression system “the eighth wonder of the world.”

Atty. Gen. Bill McCollum seeks an injunction barring Axiom from continuing to market the machine under false pretenses and also seeks a court order forcing almost $100 million in repayment to consumers and the state – the amount that Axiom received for the machine in 2005 and ’06.

Gibson told Health News Florida this morning that he cannot comment on the suit because the company hasn't received it yet.

The DRX 9000 package that is at issue in the suit cost $95,000, or $125,000 if a neck attachment is included, the complaint says.

Among the false statements, the complaint says, were that Axiom had a patent on DRX 9000, that the system was “approved” by FDA, and that NASA engineers developed it through “space age technology.”

The chiropractors who bought the system were led to believe that Medicare and private insurers would cover the treatments, when the defendants knew claims were being denied, the complaint says.

Also, it says, Axiom falsely led doctors to believe there were scientific trials showing an 86 percent success rate for the DRX 9000 in treatment of degenerative disc disease, disc herniations, sciatica and post-surgical pain.

The price included materials the doctors could use in marketing the system to the public through brochures and ads. So far, the complaint says, 12 chiropractors who used the Axiom marketing materials have been accused of false advertising by the state health department.

The company’s Web site,, was not in operation today, but a lot of information was available on a related site,

There, the system was said to “provide relief of pain and symptoms associated with herniated discs, bulging or protruding …discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, and sciatica.”

The site also offers videos of patient testimonials and a map of practitioners who use the DRX system. In Florida, there are 68 listed.

In July 2006, North American Medical Corp. sued Axiom for trademark infringement regarding DRX 9000, but Axiom kept making false claims, the attorney general’s complaint says.
