DrugNews has uncovered health warnings from experts such as the New England Journal of Medicine showing vaginal ring contraceptives like NuvaRing may result in a 6.5 times increased risk of blood clots***.

Now, The resource center has learned NuvaRing maker Merck has filed suit against rival drug company Actavis over allegations that it marketed plans to release a generic version of NuvaRing prior to the expiration of Merck’s patent in 2018*.

According to court records, a number of women have already filed a NuvaRing lawsuit against Merck alleging blood clots from the device, with cases consolidated to a special federal multidistrict litigation court. The formal case is In re: NuvaRing Products Liability Litigation, No. 08-md-1964, JPML, Eastern District Missouri. The latest court records show 1,610 cases filed as of December 16****.
