In early October 1999, Sir Richard Sykes, the chairman of Glaxo Wellcome, then Britain’s largest pharmaceutical company, stormed into No 10 Downing Street, the Prime Minister’s residence and office. He was, says Trevor Jones, then the director general of the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry, “incandescent.” A body that most people had not heard of – the National Institute for Clinical Excellence – had just recommended that the National Health Service in England and Wales should not prescribe Relenza, Glaxo’s new treatment for influenza.
