Pfizer to withdraw Bextra from US, EU and Canadian markets

The FDA has asked Pfizer to withdraw its COX-2 drug, Bextra, from the US market "because its overall risk versus benefit profile is unfavourable." The agency also requested that labels for Celebrex, and all other prescription NSAIDS, carry a boxed warning highlighting the potential for cardiovascular and gastrointestinal risks. Additionally, Pfizer will suspend sales of Bextra in the EU and Canada, at the request of their respective regulators.
