Dr. Galson talked about the Food and Drug Administration’s handling of Vioxx, the painkiller drug that was on the market for 5 years before Merck withdrew it September 30, 2004. Merck withdrew Vioxx when a study showed its use almost doubled the risk of heart attack and stroke. The previous week, the Senate Finance Committee held a hearing on “FDA, Merck and Vioxx: Putting Patient Safety First?” The Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission were also investigating Merck. He also responded to telephone calls, faxes, and electronic mail from viewers. close
