In a St. a Joseph Health Scene report, Congress wants more information from the drug company Merck on a possible link between the popular cholesterol drug Vytorin and cancer. Data from the company's own research showed more patients given the drug were diagnosed with the disease compared with those taking a placebo. There were 105 cancer cases among the nearly 19-hundred patients who used Vytorin and 70 among those taking a sugar pill. Company officials maintain the increase is due to chance.
