  • FDA Panel: Merck's Vioxx Safe to Be Sold

    A panel of U.S. experts by a narrow margin said on Friday that Merck & Co. Inc.'s (NYSE:MRK - news) now-withdrawn painkiller Vioxx was safe enough to be sold in the United States despite an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.

    A Reuters unofficial count showed 17 out of 32 voting panelists told the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (news - web sites) the drug could be on the market with some restrictions. An official tally is pending.
