Further Vioxx® Chronicles: Federal Court Grants Plaintiffs Leave To Add To Class Complaint — For A Sixth Time

31 05 2013

New Merck, Reviewed

The eminently capable New Jersey federal District Court Judge Stanley R. Chesler published an opinion (that’s a 13 page PDF file) earlier today, in the 2004-’05-era Vioxx® Securities and ERISA Class Action, allowing the plaintiffs to add additional claims. This time, the added allegations point to misleading statements made (by Merck) in 2000, which — it is claimed — were designed to remove suspicions about the safety of Vioxx. Those allegedly misleading disclosures have been dubbed the “4% Statement”.

Valeant apparently hopes to cut S, G & A in half, but Warburg already gutted that mine, and Valeant forgets that the surgical business of B + L has high S G & A needs.

In my opinion, Valeant must be thinking it will sell the surgical lines to pay down some debt. It cannot run the combined businesses, intact — with as low as a 20 per cent S G & A line, for the longer haul. Here is a…

It is an irritant for mammals, including humans, and produces a sensation of burning in any tissue with which it comes into contact. Capsaicin and several related compounds are called capsaicinoids and are produced as secondary metabolites by chili peppers, probably as deterrents against certain mammals and fungi.[2] Pure capsaicin is a volatile, hydrophobic, colorless, odorless, crystalline to waxy compound.

The compound was first extracted (albeit in impure form) in 1816 by Christian Friedrich Bucholz (1770–1818)…
