The vast majority of Schering employees are decent, honest, hard-working people. . . .

. . . .which is why this sort of e-mail traffic is so unfortunate — here, the Lead Medical Investigator of the ENHANCE study (Dr. Kastelein) is trying to get a meeting scheduled with Schering-Plough and Merck executives, to go through ENHANCE issues, and apparently, the ball has been dropped on scheduling the meeting — things aren’t progressing. So, one of the executives asks about the “level of priority” on the project, at the Schering-Plough Research Institute (or “SPRI”, below) — remember, this is about a year and a half after the study was completed. Profanity ensues. As ever, click to enlarge:

This sort of traffic might lead one to wonder whether SPRI executives had some “additional motivation” in not promptly following-up on these presumably-proper requests — from the study’s lead medical investigator, no less — to schedule an important meeting.

  1. I’ve used your “small print” on my blog – hope this is ok. Let me know if not.

    Cheers

  2. My pleasure.

    No problem.

  3. I posted the link to your blog on the cafepharma SP board. Was it you who replied, or someone pretending to be you?

  4. It WAS me. Thanks for the link!

  5. The prick referred to isn’t another Schering executive. It is a Merck executive.
