Oregon wins Pfizer settlement ($1.2M)

August 18, 2014 --

courtBy Oregon Department of Justice

Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum and 41 other state Attorneys General reached a $35 million settlement with Pfizer Inc, the parent company of Wyeth Pharmaceuticals Inc., to resolve allegations that Wyeth promoted immunosuppressive drug Rapamune for off-label uses. As one of two lead states in the settlement, Oregon will receive $1.2 million for its consumer protection and education account.

“This settlement sends a united message that large pharmaceutical companies cannot promote off-label drug for uses that haven’t been approved by the Food and Drug Administration,” said Attorney General Rosenblum. “Oregon continues to be a national leader in fighting these bad marketing practices by large companies that know better than to try to skirt regulations, thereby putting consumers at risk.”
