Wyeth Loses Prempro Trial in Philadelphia
Wyeth lost a Prempro trial in Philadelphia on Monday and was ordered to pay an Arkansas woman $1.5 million. This is just one of about 5,000 Prempro lawsuits the company is facing.
The jury is expected to return, possibly as soon as Tuesday, to decide punitive damages after also finding that Wyeth's conduct was "malicious, wanton, willful or oppressive or showed reckless indifference to the interest of others" in its failure to provide proper warnings about its HRT drugs, taken by millions of women to treat symptoms of menopause.
