Doctor Fakes Research and Goes to Jail

A prominent 51 year old anesthesiologist pled guilty to falsifying research on the analgesic medications Celebrex and Vioxx for post-op pain managment.  He was sentenced in Massachusetts federal court to 6 months in prison and given hefty fines to be paid to the pharmaceutical companies who financed his research and paid him to promote their drugs.

Dr. Scott Reuben just plain faked the results.
