Simes Kaiser and Gornick LLP, Bailey Perrin Bailey LLP and Weitz & Luxenberg, P.C., Have Filed a Class Action Lawsuit Today in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York Against Merck &

Co., Inc. and Schering-Plough Corporation.

GREAT NECK, N.Y., Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- On January 17, 2008, the law firms of Parker Waichman Alonso LLP, Becnel Law Firm, LLC, Douglas & London P.C., Levin Simes Kaiser and Gornick LLP, Bailey Perrin Bailey LLP and Weitz & Luxenberg, P.C., filed a Class Action lawsuit in Federal District Court, Eastern District of New York, Docket #08-258 before The Honorable Carol Bagley Amon, Judge of the United States Eastern District Court of New York, against Merck & Co., Inc. and Schering-Plough Corporation. The class action seeks, in part, refunds to individuals who were prescribed and purchased the popular cholesterol statin drug, Vytorin(R). Vytorin(R) is a single pill combination of two drugs, Zocor and Zetia, (ezetimibe plus simvastatin).

The lawsuit alleges that Merck & Co., Inc. and Schering-Plough Corporation, the manufacturers of the prescription drug, Vytorin(R), made misrepresentations and withheld significant information in its approval submissions and filings with the Federal Drug Administration. It is also alleged that misrepresentations were made to the general public through marketing efforts as to the effectiveness of the drug. In reality, studies have shown that it is no better than other available drugs on the market in lowering cholesterol.

The above law firms have been contacted and retained by many individuals, including the proposed class representative, who have been prescribed and used Vytorin(R) and who are seeking refunds for their prescriptions.
