More allegations about ENHANCE fiasco laid out in Vytorin lawsuit complaint

A 200+ page complaint filed in the Schering-Plough/ENHANCE lawsuit provides the closest glimpse yet of the inner workings and details of the ENHANCE trial fiasco, at least from the perspective of the company’s critics. The lengthy document provides a detailed chronology of the trial’s history and the interactions of the company and the trial’s academic investigators and consultants.

One potentially explosive new development: the document includes many details based on testimony from several insiders within Schering-Plough, though for now these confidential witnesses remain anonymous, and they have not been deposed or cross-examined by opposing attorneys.

A spokesman for Schering-Plough sent the following response to CardioBrief:

There is nothing new in this filing.  These allegations have been made and responded to before.  We are confident the company will ultimately be vindicated.
