LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Jury selection will begin Monday in federal court in the first trial of 4,500 lawsuits filed nationwide that challenge Prempro, a hormone-replacement therapy that some women say causes breast cancer.
Linda Reeves of Benton filed the suit against drug maker Wyeth, and argued that she developed breast cancer after taking Prempro for eight years. Another Little Rock woman, Helene Rush, has argued similar claims in a federal suit against the drug maker. Rush has an Oct. 10 court date for her case.
