Merck Pays Claims to Families of 3,468 Vioxx Users

Bloomberg News (7/28, Voreacos, Johnson) reports “Merck & Co. paid claims to the families of 3,468 users of its Vioxx painkiller who died of heart attacks or strokes,” a court-appointed administrator told a judge Tuesday.

“A $4.85 billion settlement fund made payments to the families of 2,878 Vioxx users who died of heart attacks and 590 who died of strokes,” according to Lynn Greer of BrownGreer LLP, a law firm in Richmond, Virginia, that analyzed 59,365 claims. Merck “pulled Vioxx from the market in 2004 after a study showed it doubled the risk of heart attacks and strokes.”
