In the last paragraph for Plan III, they stated: "This is the same as Plan I, but the lower doses make findings much less likely."


Again, "this looks like risk management," Healy told the jury.


"What seems to be happening here," he said, "is an effort to design a particular kind of experiment that would look like we have been doing things but we're trying to control the risks, things that could go wrong."


"So that people will say, well, yes, they have done the experiments, but it didn't show a particular problem," he told the jury.


Later in the memo, they stated: "Obviously, conducting no more studies and arguing the case with the MHW would have no regulatory implications elsewhere unless our arguments fail and the MHW requests us to do the type of study we wish to avoid."


And then it went on to warn: "If they do request a study, there's a potential problem in that they may direct/insist on our performing a study to their preferred design."


"At least we are now in the position of being able to do the study we chose and then defending it," they wrote, with an exclamation point.


After having Healy discuss what was meant by comments throughout the memo, Tracey asked: "Is there anything in this entire document you see, Dr. Healy, that appears as if there is a study being designed by this company to find out the truth about their drug in pregnancy?"
