UK's Prescription Medicines Code of Practice Authority (PMCPA): Anonymous vs Otsuka (Versión PharmaGuy)


Male Otsuka UK Marketing Executive's Behavior Worse Than Bill Cosby's: Has Women Subordinates Provide Drinks to Intoxicated Female HCP 

According to the UK's Prescription Medicines Code of Practice Authority (PMCPA), which oversees the self-regulatory code of the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI), "An anonymous, non-contactable complainant alleged that a male employee of Otsuka Pharmaceuticals (UK) behaved inappropriately and provided inappropriate hospitality following a dinner at a meeting partly funded by the pharmaceutical industry.

A female health professional, who the complainant remembered as being very drunk at the dinner, subsequently entered the bar and started talking to the Otsuka employees. Although she was obviously intoxicated a male Otsuka employee continued to ply her with drinks; his two female colleagues seemed unhappy with this" (see "AUTH/2752/3/15 - Anonymous v Otsuka").

It has no problems talking about erections on TV, but sexual encounters in real life must be described in clinical terms such as "tactile."] 

The document goes on to describe in some detail what happened that night, which sounds like something straight out of a True Romance comic. 
Here's my graphic depiction of the suave style of the Otsuka executive:


You won't believe what happened next. 

"During the evening the body language between the male and the health professional became more intimate and flirtatious," says the PMCPA account. "Eventually after a number of drinks having being bought by the male in question for the female health professional they left the bar within minutes of each other."
