WASHINGTON, March 28 (Reuters) – Officials in Massachusetts
have blocked sales of Zogenix’s controversial but
U.S.-approved painkiller Zohydro, prompting the drugmaker to
criticize what it called an “unprecedented action.”
The state’s ban “only serves to unfairly restrict patient
access,” the company said in a statement late Thursday.
“Ultimately, the ban on the prescription medication will add to
patient suffering in the state,” it added.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Mike Rogers, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and an outspoken defender of U.S. surveillance programs, said on Friday he would leave Congress after this year to host a talk radio show for Cumulus Media Inc.
“I had a career before politics and always planned to have one after,” the Michigan Republican said in a statement. Rogers plans to start his Cumulus show in January, the Detroit News reported.
