It is true that the executive management of SP AND Merck through the auspices of the WWOC (World wide Operations Committee) have placed a hold on abstract submission.This statement i part of an email string between the irate Dr. Kastelein, ENHANCE lead investigator, and Schering-Plough, released in response to the most recent letter from Senator Grassley.In response to this Dr. Kastelein wrote:" . . . you will be seen as a company that tries to hide something and I will be perceived as being in bed with you !"
