The United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation issued its order on October 1, 2009, establishing MDL No. 2100 for individual lawsuits filed by women who have been injured as a result of their ingestion of Yasmin, Yaz and Ocella oral contraceptive products. All of the cases pending in federal courts will be transferred to the Southern District of Illinois. The initial transfer order includes 32 cases that have been filed by patients in California, Georgia, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, and Wisconsin.
All of the cases involve allegations that the popular birth control pills containing the new progestin drospirenone increase the risk of serious life-threatening health problems, such as heart attacks, strokes, pulmonary embolisms, deep vein thrombosis, gallbladder disease and sudden death from Yaz or Yasmin.
Yaz and Yasmin both contain a combination of ethinyl estradiol, which is used in many oral contraceptives, and drospirenone, a unique type of progestin that is only found in these drugs and a generic Yasmin version sold under the brand name Ocella. Drospirenone, or drsp, impacts the body’s normal mechanism of regulating a balance between salt and water.
Common claims being brought against Bayer, the maker of Yasmin and Yaz, include:
* Strict product liability
* Deceptive advertising
* Fraudulent and intentional misrepresentation
* Breach of warranty
* Failure to warn consumers of Yaz and Yasmin’s serious, and sometimes life-threatening, side effects
* Failure to exercise ordinary care in the testing and manufacturing of Yaz and Yasmin
* Failure to conduct adequate clinical tests and studies to determine whether Yasmin and Yaz were safe.
