Merck Hides Vioxx Clinical Trial Results

Comments Off

According to the Associated Press, Merck failed to report to authorities about tests in which users of Vioxx were at greater risk for death then people given placebo. This is according to Dr. Edward Scolnick, the former head of Merck’s research laboratories. Dr. Scolnick also testified that in two clinical trials people on Vioxx death was more than two times as likely for those on Vioxx. Merck failed to report these results to the Food and Drug Administration. Additional Information Available Here.
