The goal of pharmacovigilance is not to minimize risk, "particularly when the Japanese government is concerned about the risk," Parisian told the jury.

"And in terms of pharmacovigilance, animal study feeds into the information you have about outcomes of infants," she told the jury.
In 1997, Glaxo teratologist, Patrick Wier, conducted the rat study, with Segment one comparable to women in the first trimester of pregnancy, and Segments Two and Three comparable to women in the second and third trimesters.
Each "type of study in a rat is trying to simulate what would occur in a woman at those different stages," Parisian explained to the jury.
