    J&J reports anemia drug linked to deaths in study testing it on stroke patients


    TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- A blockbuster anemia drug made by a Johnson & Johnson company has been linked to the deaths of some patients in an experiment testing whether it could help stroke patients.
    J&J's Ortho Biotech unit said late Wednesday that it had learned of preliminary data from a study in which participants were being given its drug Eprex within six hours of suffering an ischemic stroke, in which an artery blockage limits the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain.

    In the study, which was designed and initiated by a German scientist, more patients treated with Eprex died than in the comparison group receiving a placebo.
