Collagen Corp. to Back Doctors: The Palo Alto company said it will indemnify doctors against lawsuits filed over collagen. It made the announcement four days after federal health officials announced that collagen users have a higher incidence of two connective tissue diseases, though they have not found a link or causal relationship between collagen and the diseases. “We are confident in the safety of our injectable collagen products,” said Howard D. Palefsky, Collagen president and chief executive. “The indemnification program is perhaps the clearest way we can demonstrate that confidence to physicians.”
