Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals has significant product liability claims over its oral contraceptive Yaz and its alleged dangerous side effects.
Yaz, Yasmin, and the generic version Ocella have all come under attack for their overstated benefits and minimized risks. Experts predict that more than 25,000 cases could eventually be filed by women alleging dangerous side effects from using the prescription contraceptive.
Read the latest minutes from the Southern Illinois MDL court.
Berlex Laboratories, began manufacturing Yasmin in 2001, and was acquired by Bayer Healthcare in 2006. Before being bought by Bayer, the FDA issued a warning to Berlex to discontinue a misleading television advertisement for Yasmin.
Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, released a newer version of the pill under the name of Yaz in 2006. The FDA issued another warning in 2008 over misleading commercials aired on television by Bayer. Despite the warnings and several cases of death reported after using the hormonal birth control, Yaz become a very popular and bestselling oral contraceptive.
Yaz uses a unique form of progestin, drosperinone which has been linked to stroke, gallbladder stones, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and sudden death.
The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) ordered, in mid 2009, that all Yasmin and Yaz litigation that are pending federal courts be consolidated in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois.
Chief Judge David R. Herndon,presiding over the MDL, has talked about establishing “bellwether” trials in which juries will be gauged on how they respond to evidence presented by the litigation.
