In January 2012, the Honorable David Herndon, who is the presiding judge on many Bayer birth control pill lawsuits, postponed the first scheduled Yaz trial and ordered the case to mediation. (http://www.ilsd.uscourts.gov/
In February 2012, Bayer Healthcare reported that it settled approximately 70 YAZ/Yasmin claims. “This is yet another step in the right direction. Clearly this court ordered mediation started the process for a potential global resolution to the litigation,”
The notice of the settlements comes days after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a label change for drospirenone-
The revised label addresses studies that reported a three-fold increase in the risk of blood clots for drospirenone-
The FDA’s label change decision follows the recommendation of an advisory panel that met in December, voting 21-5 that labeling on Bayer’s Yaz birth control pill is inadequate and should be revised to better reflect the higher risk of blood clots associated with these drugs.
