Prempro (conjugated estrogen/medroxyprogesterone acetate tablets) is the world’s number one selling hormone replacement therapy (HRT) drug in the world. Marketed by the globe’s single largest pharmaceutical company, Pfizer, Inc., Prempro’s once-daily tablet HRT is typically prescribed to mitigate night sweats, hot flashes and other symptoms of menopause. The HRT had originally been introduced by Wyeth, a Pfizer acquisition since 2009. In 2005, following the release of a large scale federal study, Wyeth’s stock had plummeted 24%.
As a result of numerous and alarming findings of the federal clinical trial, Wyeth’s stock decline had occurred after the company announced the abrupt cancellation of its own study on the potential risks versus benefits of Prempro. The federal findings had convinced Wyeth’s researchers that their study had placed women in the study at too great a risk of serious injury or death by taking the drug. Closing the trial could hardly be considered as a vote of confidence in the pharmaceutical company’s own product.
Unfortunately, numerous subsequent studies have linked daily use of Prempro with a number of serious to fatal side effects that include: a 29% increase in cardiac events such as heart attacks; a 41% jump in the incidence of strokes; an approximate doubling of the risk for thrombus (blood clot) formation, and a 26% increase in the rate of breast cancer. As a result, numerous lawsuits against Pfizer allege that the pharmaceutical giant has long known about the serious to potentially lethal side effects of Prempro, but the company had willfully and negligently failed to issue sufficient warnings about the potentially deadly drug to physicians and the general public, including approximately six million American women who continue to use Prempro on a daily basis.
