It’s being reported in the national media that Merck & Co. is now officially “a target” of a grand jury investigation involving Vioxx. According to the reports, the investigation started in 2004. The company admitted that a letter from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts stating the company was a target was received last month. While the investigation is said to involve activities in connection with Vioxx, I am not sure what all is being looked at. But, I believe it deals with alleged fraudulent conduct concerning the marketing of the painkiller and the concealment of information.
