Vioxx maker Merck and Co. drew up doctor hit list
The Australian, April 30, 2009
An international drug company made a hit list of doctors who had to be "neutralized" or discredited because they criticized the anti-arthritis drug the pharmaceutical giant produced. Staff at Merck & Co. emailed each other about the list of doctors who had been negative about the drug Vioxx or Merck and a recommended course of action. The email, which came out as part of a class action against the drug company, included the words "neutralize", "neutralized" or "discredit" against some of the doctors' names.
