    Hormone Replacement Drug Lawsuits

    Most of the hormone lawsuits in the U.S."focus on the drug Prempro [conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone]," which was "prescribed to treat" menopausal symptoms.

    On Jan. 6, 2010 the 8th US Circuit Court of Appeals "reinstated more than 100 lawsuits against drug companies filed by women or their surviving relatives who claimed that hormone replacement therapy caused breast cancer." The move overturned "a 2008 district court ruling that had blocked almost all of the suits from being sent back to state court in Minnesota and dismissed most of the lawsuits that were being heard in Little Rock." The appeals court also "reversed the dismissal of dozens of cases that the lower court ruled should not have been part of the litigation because they duplicated claims pending in California."
