First Arkansas Prempro Case Goes To Trial

Comments Off

The first of over 4,500 Prempro lawsuits is set to go to trial before a U.S. Magistrate Judge in Little Rock, Arkansas with jury selection slated to begin first thing tomorrow morning. Benton Arkansas resident, Linda Reeves, is suing the drug manufacturer Wyeth after alleging she developed breast cancer after taking Prempro, a hormone-replacement therapy, for the last eight years. Prempro is a widely prescribed estrogen-progestin combination used to treat pre-menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes. This case will be used to predict the landscape of all the pending litigation regarding Prempro in the state of Arkansas and abroad.
