Does anybody remember what happened to Vioxx ? The drug was recalled as it was causing increased risk of severe cardiovascular events - but Merck was hiding the data for a few years before it all came out. https://www.npr.org/2007/11/10/5470430/timeline-the-rise-and-fall-of-vioxx
“November 2007 Merck announces it will pay $4.85 billion to end thousands of lawsuits over its painkiller Vioxx. The amount, to be paid into a so-called settlement fund, is believed to be the largest drug settlement ever.”
Will history repeat itself ?
