Peer Pressure

Friday, May 29, 2009


In a lawsuit last month against drug manufacturer Merck, the plaintiff introduced a 'peer reviewed journal' strongly supportive of Merck drugs. The ‘journal’, it turned out, was paid for by Merck and its peer-review status was a fraud. Since then, six other journals have been revealed – all falsely identified as peer reviewed. Dr. Peter Lurie of Public Citizen explains how journal publishers and drug companies work together.

Your image is of Merck Serono, of Darmstadt, Germany. The scandal of which you speak refers to US based Merck & Co. Please correct, as these are two wholly different and separate companies.

thank you!
