318.31-32 coming on like Smith, Klein, 'n' French
Smith Kline & French (now GlaxoSmithKline), now the second largest pharmaceutical company in the world (after Pfizer), began in the late 19th century and through various mergers became Smith Kline & French in the early 20th century, focusing on research. In 1952, SK & F purchased the rights to Chlorpromazine, the first antipsychotic drug, used during the 1950s and 1960s. Used as chlorpromazine hydrochloride and sold under the tradenames Largactil® and Thorazine®, it has sedative, hypotensive and antiemetic properties as well as anticholinergic and antidopaminergic effects. In 1954, chlorpromazine was approved in the US for psychiatric treatment. The effect of this drug in emptying psychiatric hospitals has been compared to that of penicillin and infectious diseases.
