The market withdrawal of rofecoxib (Vioxx) in September 2004 was the logical, if long-overdue, result of what has become a major scandal. How can similar situations be avoided in the future?

This was the theme of the press conference held at Prescrire headquarters after the annual awards ceremony on 20 January 2005
