Grossberg v. Merck

Merck won its second Vioxx case in a month. This is Forbes with prelim reporting, as well as more extensive quotes from Merck counsel in another piece, and here is Point of Law’s archive on its coverage of the ongoing situation.

Here’s some history on the Grossberg case at Drug Injury Watch (nice name for a blog). Unlike some other cases I can’t find mention of any of the extreme MI risk factors in Mr. Grossberg that have appeared in other plaintiffs (both victors and losers) – extremely high cholesterol, disjointed lipid profiles, hypertension, diabetes.
