High Court Won’t Hear Pfizer Hormone Therapy Appeal

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The U.S. Supreme Court denied a Pfizer unit’s appeal for a $58 million award to three women who developed breast cancer after taking menopause drugs Premarin and Prempro. According to Bloomberg, the award is the largest upheld on appeal in any hormone-replacement suit. In 2002, a study sponsored by the U.S. National Institutes of Health showed a 24 percent increased risk of breast cancer in patients using the drugs. At that time, over 6 million women were taking Prempro. In July 2004, Arlene Rowatt, Jeraldine Scofield and Pamela Forrester filed a lawsuit against Pfizer’s Pharmacia & Upjohn unit and Wyeth claiming the companies’ failed to warn consumers the drugs were linked to an increased risk of breast cancer and that upon using the menopause drugs each developed breast cancer, says Bloomberg. The women used the drugs between seven and 15 years before being diagnosed. Pharmacia & Upjohn settled the claims agreeing to pay an undisclosed amount to the three women. Wyeth chose to litigate the claims and in 2007 a jury awarded the plaintiffs $134.1

million which was later reduced by the trial judge to $57.6 billion. In 2008, a judge awarded the three women’s attorneys over $1.6 million in fees and expenses, totaling the verdict over $59 million. Wyeth appealed the verdict but the Nevada Supreme Court held the jury was correct in finding the company responsible for not revealing the increased risk of breast cancer associated with Premarin and Prempro. Wyeth argued to the justices that the Nevada judge should have ordered a new trial rather than reduce the award. The company also said the jury “was swayed by an ‘improper and inflammatory’ closing argument by the plaintiff’s attorney.” The plaintiff’s attorney said the award was warranted due to the company’s misleading marketing campaign; however, Wyeth is disappointed with the Supreme

Court’s decision to refuse the company’s appeal. Before the 2002 study, Wyeth’s annual sales for hormone-replacement drugs topped $2 million. In 2007, Bloomberg reported that the company faced more than 5,000 product-liability suits. Presently, Wyeth has settled a third of pending cases over Prempro and has set aside $772 million to resolve claims over either drug. Until 1996, many women combined Premarin, Wyeth’s estrogen-based drug, with Provera a progestin drug. Wyeth later combined the two hormones in Prempro, reported Bloomberg. All three drugs remain on the market.
