The BBC report that over 200 patients who took the drug Rofecoxib (Vioxx) have lost an appeal for legal aid meaning that many will not be able to bring their case to court.
In addition, the insurance companies that back "no-win, no-fee" style claims have refused to provide cover. Some of the claimants are now considering trying to make their case in the USA. The decision on whether a UK citizen can bring a claim in the United States will be made by the American Judge.
Action: Clinicians may wish to be aware of the latest information regarding Rofecoxib.
