Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one.

I'm not about to sign up for a subscription, so I can't be sure, but I think I remember about a year or so ago the Wall Street Journal's editorial page dismissing the concerns over Vioxx as "non-existent." I could be wrong though. It could be that non-existent referred instead to Merck's academic integrity.

The editors at one of the world's leading medical journals have accused researchers and Vioxx manufacturer Merck & Co. of withholding key heart risk data that showed up in one of the first large trials of the now-withdrawn arthritis painkiller.

Specifically, the editors of the New England Journal of Medicine charged that a major study published in November 2000 was submitted to the journal after information about three heart attacks among Vioxx trial participants was deleted by Merck, which funded the study.
Seriously, when the day is done, what's a few heart attacks among friends?
