Pfysician pfunded by Pfizer pfaked his data. Anesthesiologist Scott Reuben faked the data in at least 21 papers, and the pain drugs he was pushing in them may have actually slowed healing:

Paul White, another editor at the journal, estimates that Reuben's studies led to the sale of billions of dollars worth of the potentially dangerous drugs known as COX2 inhibitors, Pfizer's Celebrex (celecoxib) and Merck's Vioxx (rofecoxib), for applications whose therapeutic benefits are now in question. Reuben was a member of Pfizer's speaker's bureau and received five independent research grants from the company.
