Prempro Lawsuit Leads to $4M Award

A Connecticut jury ruled that Pfizer must fork over $4 million in damages to a woman who developed breast cancer after taking the drugmaker’s menopause drug Prempro.

On April 18, the jury ruled that Pfizer’s Wyeth unit was responsible for causing Margaret Fraser’s cancer and that Prempro was an “unreasonably dangerous product,” according to Bloomberg.

Earlier this year, a jury awarded more than $45 million to two Illinois women in a similar Prempro lawsuit that also claimed the drug caused the women to develop breast cancer.

Before a 2002 study linked the drugs to cancer, more than six million women took Prempro and other related menopause drugs to treat symptoms such as mood swings and hot flashes.
