A No Brainer?
Posted by brightcoast on March 5, 2009
SCOTUS decided, I am assuming yesterday as all the related articleson the subject left much to be desired in the way of facts, that FDA approval of a drug & its warning label does not insulate a pharmaceutical company from liability. It seems obvious to me, anyway, that the injection of a drug intramuscularly which led to punctured arteries and then gangrene resulting in amputation in multiple cases should have been a red flag to Wyeth to fix the problem. I am curious as to whether they actually believed FDA approval was a legitimate defense.
