Relief from Menopause Symptoms Short-lived for Prempro Women Suffering from Cancers
Date:7/10/2012

CRESSKILL, N.J., July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Prempro promised women relief from menopause symptoms, but the relief was short-lived for the estimated 10,000 plaintiffs who developed breast cancer after taking the drug. Pfizer, which purchased Prempro's original manufacturer, Wyeth, has set aside $330 million to settle 4,000 remaining suits after already settling some 6,000 suits for $896 million. The settlements come after six years of trials in which courts found Pfizer and Wyeth guilty of "wanton and reckless" behavior (http://www.drdach.com/Prempro_Dangerous.html). As it may take months, if not years, for the settlements to be disbursed, RD Legal Funding, LLC ("RD Legal") is offering the plaintiffs, and their attorneys, legal settlement funding as soon as settlement amounts have been finalized.

A number of other adverse health consequences including ovarian and gall bladder ca
