Maker Suppressed Studies Showing Zetia and Vytorin Can Harm Liver

Page Changed: Dangerous Drugs for People with Diabetes

Added link to New York Times article describing how Merck and Schering-Plough have run studies that show Zetia in combination with a statin drug can damage the liver but has kept them from publication. The article discusses the attempt to delay publication of the study intended to show that Zetia prevented heart attack and attempts to change the endpoint of the study both of which suggest that the study found Zetia ineffective.
