$6.3 Million Verdict Against Pfizer, Maker of Prempro

A Philadelphia jury has awarded $6.3 million in damages to a woman who claimed she developed breast cancer after taking the Pfizer menopause drug Prempro, Reuters reports.  In the verdict, jurors also found that Pfizer may be liable for punitive damages because it willfully failed to warn patients about risks associated with the drug. The jury will reconvene on Monday to consider the amount of punitive damages.
