Bayer recently released its Annual Report for 2009. The report is 274 pages long. Here are the highlights:
* By Bayer’s count, as of February 15, 2010, about 1,100 lawsuits were filed against it by women injured by Yaz or Yasmin.
* Yaz and Yasmin are Bayer’s best-selling pharmaceutical products for at least the second year in a row.
* Bayer has been creating new versions of Yaz and Yasmin. Bayer has submitted new Yaz and Yasmin oral contraceptive pills containing folate (a natural source of vitamin B) to the FDA for approval for sale in the United States.
Bayer is calling these new versions “Yaz Plus” and “Yasmin Plus.” In addition to these new pills, Bayer has also created a contraceptive patch, which it calls “Yaz Flex.”
