A panel of independent experts is being convened to review all available data on the possible association between hormonal pregnancy tests, including Primodos, and birth defects. The Government is in the process of obtaining all relevant documents in order that they may be evaluated by the Panel. The time frame for the inquiry has yet to be finalised but the Panel is expected to review the evidence in the early months of 2015.
