THOUSANDS FILE SUIT AGAINST WYETH ALLEGING PREMPRO CAUSES CANCER
Thousands of women have filed lawsuits against Wyeth, the drug maker, alleging the menopause drug Prempro causes breast cancer. Also, the plaintiffs in the lawsuits allege Wyeth failed to or improperly warned users of the menopause drug of the possible adverse side effects associated with Prempro.
One such plaintiff received a $78 MILLION jury verdict in her favor against Wyeth earlier this year. More recently, a woman received over $6 MILLION jury verdict against Wyeth. The NY Times is reporting recently released documents that doctors all over the US prescribed Prempro believing the menopause drug had “protective benefits.” Subsequent studies dispute such benefits from Prempro. We posted about the Wyeth’s release of over 300,000 documents earlier this month.
