Vioxx Lawsuit Given New Life by New Jersey Appeals Court

According to Reuters News Service, a New Jersey court of appeals has given new life to a Vioxx lawsuit brought by plaintiffs who seek Merck & Company, Inc. to pay for medical monitoring for those who took the drug.

The plaintiffs are seeking a court-ordered medical screening program from the pharmaceutical company to test for heart problems arising from the use of the painkiller, Vioxx. Merck has stated that it will fight the appeal since it does not believe that plaintiffs will take advantage of the diagnostic screening if offered.

The painkiller Vioxx was pulled off the market in 2004 when it was linked to increased rate of heart attacks, stroke and other cardiovascular complications.

Because of the Vioxx lawsuit, other Celebrex lawsuits and Bextra lawsuits have taken hold since they are in the same COX 2 selective NSAIDs class of drugs as Vioxx. Merck has over 140,000 Vioxx lawsuits pending and says it will fight each case individually rather than accept any kind of broad settlement negotiation.
