Lawsuit Over Negligence Against Wyeth Was Dismissed

The lawsuit, which was filed over Prempro, a combination hormone replacement therapy manufactured by Wyeth was dismissed negligence charges and found the drug’s design was not defective.

In the first Prempro lawsuit to reach trial, plaintiff Linda Reeves alleged that the medication, which she took for eight years, caused her to develop breast cancer. According to the lawsuit, Wyeth was aware of the link between Prempro and increased risk for breast cancer prior to the release of the WHI results but did not inform the public.

Wyeth has denied the allegations and has said that there is a warning about increased risk for breast cancer on the Prempro label.
