Federal judge Herndon, who is presiding over the consolidated MDL litigation over Yaz and Yasmin birth control product liability cases, indicated that both sides in the case are working to move the litigation at a fast pace, which is keeping with the Court’s desire for the cases to “move along efficiently and effectively.”
In September, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ordered that all federal court Yaz litigation and Yasmin litigation, involving claims that the popular birth control pills increase the risk of blood clots and other injuries, be consolidated and coordinated for pretrial litigation in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois as part of an MDL, or multidistrict litigation.
About 300 women have filed lawsuits against Bayer Pharmaceuticals in federal and state courts throughout the United States. All of the lawsuits involve allegations that the drug maker failed to adequately research their birth control pills or warn about the increased risk that women using Yaz or Yasmin may suffer a stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, gallbladder disease or sudden death.
Yaz and Yasmin are two similar birth control pills that are both manufactured by Bayer, containing a combination of ethinyl estradiol and drospirenone, a new type of progestin. Drospirenone, the unique progestin has been implicated as the likely cause of the problems with Yaz and Yasmin.
The FDA agency’s Office of Surveillance and Epidemiology said in late July it had received reports of adverse effects, and even deaths, allegedly related to the use of Yasmin. The FDA said it was conducting studies of the safety of Yasmin and YAZ.
According to an August 2009 birth control study published in the British Medical Journal, pills containing drospirenone, such as Yaz, Yasmin and a generic version sold as Ocella, carry a 6.3 times increased risk of a first deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism. When compared to women taking some other types of oral birth control, the increased risk was nearly four times more among users of Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella type birth control.
