There is a story in the New York Times today about an estrogen drug manufactured and sold by Wyeth (now Pfizer).

 

The drug, Prempro, was sold as a drug to treat the symptoms of menopause and hyped as also addressing problems with heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease and blindness.

 

“MILLIONS of American women in the 1990s were told they could help their bodies ward off major illness by taking menopausal hormone drugs. Some medical associations said so. Many gynecologists and physicians said so. Respected medical journals said so, too.”

 

“Connie Barton, then a medical office assistant in Peoria, Ill., was one woman who responded to such messages.

Today they finalized the agreement reached in January to pay the $2.3 million fine.
