In the recording the former company president, Raymond Gilmartin, stated: "I mean, we haven't made any decisions about that, but we are in discussions with the FDA at this time as to whether or not the drug should be brought back and under what circumstances it should be brought back."
The drug was pulled from the market last year after evidence of increased risk of heart attacks and strokes were found. However, the same risks have also been found with other similar drugs, and these have been kept on the market with changes having been made to the labeling to make users and professionals aware of the risks.
Gilmartin stated that he could have kept Vioxx on the market last year and simply agreed to more stringent labeling, but he made the decision to withdraw the drug altogether. However, he states that through discussions with the FDA the drug may make a re-appearance.
