Vioxx cures.

The drug Vioxx has now been found to cure arthritis, permanently.
Slight side affects include sudden desire to buy farms, kick buckets, shuffle off this mortal coil. Merck had a bad day - stocks plummetted 15% as they pulled Vioxx off the market. Still. Now they only have to worry about the 91 million prescriptions written for this bringer of death.

Merck and the FDA both come in for a lot of criticism for their handling of Vioxx. Studies showed increased risks of heart attacks years before the recall, and the FDA and Merck did little. More information is at http://vioxxfdarecallinfo.blogspot.com
