Bayer's Aleve 'Proven Better' Than Tylenol Claims Fail In J&J Challenge At NAD

Executive Summary

Bayer appeals to National Advertising Review Board over NAD’s finding the firm didn't support claims its Aleve OTC provides superior pain-relief to J&J’s Tylenol. It says NAD misunderstands scientific data and it will argue pain studies it submitted were methodologically sound and pain-relief statements were not overly broad.
