Celebrex is an anti-inflammatory and painkilling drug made by Pfizer and used to treat conditions such as arthritis. It has been reported that the drug has greatly increased patients risk of developing cardiovascular disease including myocardial infarction (heart attack) or stroke. It has been claimed that Pfizer knew of this risk but continued to market and sell the product claiming that it was safe for use. Therefore it has been claimed that Pfizer knowingly put patients at risk by stating that the side effects encountered by some patients should not prevent other patients from benefiting from the drug. At the end of 2004 the first class action lawsuit was filed in Illinois.
