Pfizer Inc. Cleared of Liability in Prempro Breast Cancer Case
Published: May 31, 2012
Pfizer Inc. (PFE) (PFE) isn’t liable for the breast-cancer death of a woman who died after taking menopause drugs made by the company’s units, a Connecticut jury ruled. Jurors in federal court in Bridgeport deliberated about five hours over two days before finding Pfizer’s Wyeth unit provided proper warnings about the health risks of its Prempro hormone-replacement pill to Lynn Moss. The 62-year-old nurse died in December 2006 “after a protracted battle with breast cancer,” according to court filings.
