Former Merck Scientist Acknowledges Data Not Made Public

A story today by the Associated Press about the current Vioxx trial in New Jersey says Merck’s former research chief acknowledged that data from studies on the effects of the painkiller Vioxx on Alzheimer’s disease patients, showing an increased incidence of deaths, were not immediately disclosed to physicians. When asked by the plaintiff’s attorney if doctors should have been made aware of the study, the Merck scientist replied: “It’s data that physicians should know.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
