Merck Inquiry Backs Conduct Over Vioxx

Date: September 7, 2006
Author: Alex Berenson
QUOTE: Merck took “reasonable steps” to research Vioxx’s health risks. He said that no one at the company could have known that Vioxx was dangerous to the heart before 2004, when Merck withdrew the drug after a clinical trial revealed its risks. Evidence produced in lawsuits against Merck has shown that company scientists repeatedly discussed Vioxx’s potential dangers as early as 1997.
