PFIZER, FORMER VP ROST SETTLE FEDERAL SUIT

Published September 07. 2013 4:00AM

Pfizer Inc. and former marketing vice president Peter Rost have quietly settled a suit that accused the pharmaceutical giant of peddling drugs off label and sending kickbacks to doctors.

The industry blog Pharmalot said this week that a settlement last month ended the federal case. Terms of the agreement went undisclosed.

Rost had taken his displeasure with Pfizer public by penning a popular book and posting unflattering information about the company on his blog. He even made a brief campaign to win backing as head the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which regulates drug firms.

Rost would not comment to Pharmalot.
