Wyeth Loses Prempro Trial

A Pennsylvania state jury found Wyeth’s hormone replacement drug Prempro the culprit in a woman’s breast cancer. Wyeth was ordered to pay $1.5million in compensatory damages. Punitive damages had not been determined.
Wyeth faces about 5,000 product liability lawsuits involving Prempro which was first put on the market in 1995. Prempro remains on the market to this day.
